Residents in a northern suburb are fed up with being treated as "second class citizens" and are calling for council to clean up their parklands.
The Gobbagombalin Parklands is a 4.7 hectare area, which runs along Ross Parkway, and Wagga City Council conducted community consultations last year about future plans.
However, soon-to-be Gobbagombalin resident Haley Tait said there has been no communication since the submissions closed in September.
"We haven't heard anything from council and I'm hoping at the very least we can get the park tidied up," Mrs Tait said.
"The grass is not growing and weeds need to be eradicated and means you can't walk through here at all without getting Bindii all through your shoes and kids can't ride their bikes through here.
"It sort of feels like a forgotten park, whereas Collins Park and the Botanic Gardens are all lush, immaculate and green spaces."
Mrs Tait said the park should be cared for as it is used by the community.
"Come 6pm, there's usually three to four families here and it's very well utilised and while we don't live out here at the moment, we bring our daughter out here three to four times a week to use the park facilities," she said.
Couple Kerry and Liz Anschaw have been living at their Gobbagombalin home for more than two years and said residents are not "asking for much".
"We had grand kids up here and while they were in the playground, I was weeding the parklands," Mr Anschaw said.
"There are places for the big kids, but nothing for little kids."
Mrs Anschaw said while the dam was removed and some trees were planted, the park is "never weeded" and it has become residents' responsibility.
"I'd like to see the weeds at least tried to be removed, because it's just a waste, a nothing space that is currently a dust bowl," she said.
"I'd like to see the sprinkler system changed and put around the whole perimeter, so that the entire grass area gets some water.
"It's just such a huge waste of money that the planted trees, haven't been watered and are now dying."
Mrs Anschaw said it is not fair that residents who pay their rates are "treated as second class citizens".
Wagga City Council said the development for the Gobbagombalin Parklands is set to be developed over the next two years.
"We appreciate the concerns from the community and the Gobbagombalin Parklands are scheduled to be mown next week and are mown every four weeks as part of council’s seasonal mowing program," said director commercial operations Caroline Angel.
"The parklands are a retention basin and some parts are irrigated, with the grass growing more quickly in those areas.
"The trees planted last year are watered regularly for the first two years to help them establish and a long-term weed spraying program has been implemented for the park."
Ms Angel said the project will be developed into a space for the community to "explore, play and enjoy" , with a mix of new recreation and sporting equipment, amenities and landscaping.
"The funding for this project is included in the Wagga Local Infrastructure Contributions Plan, which is currently on public exhibition," she said.
