ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Boys & Girls Club in Albany sits right by Tift Park and CEO Marvin Laster said as Tift Park gets a makeover, so will his club.

Over the last few months, The Boys & Girls Club has made improvements to its building, including redoing the gym.

After this swim season, the Olympic size pool will also be completely redone.

The city has allotted $650,000 worth of SPLOST funds to help refurbish the pool. 

Laster has a plan to renovate the entire club room by room to make the building mirror the improvements to Tift Park and downtown. 

"We're working day to day and are willing to work with the Friends of Tift Park to stand shoulder to shoulder with them to ensure that this area flourishes and can be all that it can be," said Laster.

Laster said the club sits right between Tift Park and downtown and his goal is to make his building the gateway in downtown that people have been wanting for years.
