BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) -

Construction has started to revitalize the Earle May Boat Basin on the Flint River.

The area that attracts many people to Bainbridge has a few unfinished projects that leaders are now working to complete.

The first is Cheney Griffin Park.

Bainbridge's city manager said this was once just a big area of asphalt but it will become a real park.

"We want to make that an area where it's just continuous passive recreation activity, so you can go down there go for a walk on the trail, you can sit and have lunch on the river, or you can sit and read a book and do nothing," said Chris Hobby, City Manager.

The plan is to remove the asphalt and plant grass and put in picnic tables. A dog park is also under consideration.
