PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Springville residents want more public park space, and city leaders are now working to oblige them.

A conceptual plan for upgrades to existing parks and new ones they want to build is in development. City Manager Troy Fitzgerald says the plan should be complete in a few months.

The plan proposes three kinds of parks: pocket parks smaller than 7 acres, neighborhood parks with playgrounds and pavilions, and community parks for large gatherings and events.

Currently the city has no community parks. But city leaders recently bought an undeveloped 40-acre plot of land west downtown. Under the plan it will become a community park for sports events, outdoor festivals and other gatherings.
