THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

A park in Thomasville is getting a much needed upgrade this month.

City leaders did a survey of park equipment at Remington Park.

They found that some of it did not meet safety requirements.

With SPLOST funds they are now replacing all of the equipment.

"We’re very proud of our public green spaces here and the enjoyment that our citizens get from our city parks," said Sheryl Sealy.

Next up for work is Weston Park.

City leaders said they will hold a public forum for input on that park.
