CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

A Cape Girardeau man hopes his dreams of building a skate park will soon become reality.

After years of trying, Chris Hutson was recently offered a piece of property across the street from the A.C. Brase Arena.

He said he has it all planned out, as far as the land is concerned. Now, he's applying for grant money to pay for the park itself.

The park will be for skateboarders, BMX riders and rollerbladers.

It will cost between $300,000 and $400,000.

He said it's in the preliminary stage and right he's trying to gauge the interest.
