Weeks after the Geauga Park District acquired 317 acres in a lease agreement with the Russell Township Park District, the county park system has decided to add another 180 acres to its growing land mass.

On Tuesday, park commissioners unanimously approved the purchase of the Wicked Woods Golf Club, owned by Ed and Connie Babcock of Junction Auto Sales in Chardon, for $1.5 million using previously appropriated tax dollars. The $1.5 million price tag includes $670,000 in buildings, $733,000 in land and $97,000 in equipment, according to the agreement.
