CAPE CORAL, Fla.- Cape Coral leaders are looking to turn an abandoned, overgrown, golf course into a park.

Cape Coral Council members say they don't have the $10 million necessary to buy the land along Country Club and Palm Tree Boulevard.

Now, they're looking to work with neighbors to turn what some call an eyesore into useful land.
