ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

People in Albany now have a new place to celebrate the fall-like weather.

Faith Park off Whispering Pines Road officially welcomed community members Sunday afternoon.

Albany Christian Church members have been working to turn a 3-and-a half acre lot into a designated green space for Albany residents.

There's a basketball court, a half-mile walking trail and grassy field for anyone who wants space to play. 

Chris Hill, Albany Christian Church Pastor, said the project is more than 4 years in the making.

"A lot of prayer, a lot of work, and a lot of sweat," explained Hill "And so to see this happen today and to see a lot of people out here playing and having a good time and enjoying each other, this is, this is what we envisioned it would be when we started this."

Through church members' donations, the Park was completed in July.
