ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A large piece of waterfront property has been donated to the city of Albany, that could potentially be used to expand a recreational park.

Landowners donated 172 acres to the city of Albany because of tax purposes.

The property stretches from Ball Park Lane to Lake Worth.

City Attorney Nathan Davis said that this is an opportunity to potentially expand the existing Paul Eames Sports Complex. 

"Easily you can add to that facility, and then decide what facility you would like to build in the northern part of the property," said Davis. 

Some of the topics being discussed for the land are tennis courts, more ball fields and even a marina since some of the property is waterfront land.
