LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The battling parties of a 20-year argument over who owns a key piece of a Pulaski County park say the dispute is ready to be settled by a judge.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1sIyWI1 ) reports that both sides recently asked a judge to set a date to hear their arguments.

The 1,000-acre Two Rivers Park became a partnership between Little Rock and Pulaski County in 1992.

But a joint venture representing property owners says they’re the owners of a 45-acre section where a bridge connects a trail to the park at the junction of the Arkansas and Little Maumelle rivers. The joint venture sued the city and county in 2012.

A judge said at a 2012 hearing that he found merit in the city and county’s arguments that the suit should be dismissed, but that they didn’t have enough proof.
