ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Ground broke Thursday on a city park located in the Anderson Heights Neighborhood that's been 10 years in the making.

The soon-to-be-park is near 118th and Dennis Chavez. Work was supposed to begin in July but was delayed by the discovery of ancient Native American bones. That wasn't the project's only setback. 

"Prior to that there was a study done because they thought there was going to be some ancient remains here," City Councilor Klarissa Peña said. "The study determined that we were a-OK to move on the project. Then, come to find out, as they started construction they found some remains."

City officials are working with local Native American tribes to property relocate the bones. Meanwhile, homeowners in Anderson Heights say they're excited to soon have their long-awaited park.
