Greg Neft, KSL Newsradio Residents of the Hunter Village subdivision in West Valley City say they're fed up with the lack of a promised park. The city says things don't move that fast.

It's a vacant lot near 6800 South and 3400 West that borders several homes, but resident Maggie Mecham says they were promised a park. "They told us it would be done before we moved in," she said.

The developer gave the land to the city so they could build a bigger park, but the city says the park is behind some other projects on their list.

Parks and Recreation Director Kevin Astill thinks construction should start within 2 years. "I'm not sure that it would have been done any sooner because, as this subdivision has been built out, parks haven't bee the first things that were built anyway," he said.

For its part, developer McArthur Homes notes there are several finished parks already in the development.
