Much of orchestra's Blossom property will become part of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park

In The Region:

Nearly 600 acres of the Blossom Music Center are about to officially become part of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Funding for the second phase of the 9.2 million dollar purchase came through late last week.

The Trust for Public Land set up the sale from the Cleveland Orchestra’s parent organization to the park with the help of federal funds. The park and the trust have been concerned that the land would go for private development if the deal didn’t go through.

Project Manager David Vasarheli (Vass – ah- rel – ee) says other privately held properties in and near the 33-thousand-acre park could eventually end up part of the park as well.  But there’s no money for now in the federal budget for places like Brandywine Golf Course and the Girl Scout’s Camp Ledgewood.

The Girl Scouts announced last month they’re closing five northeast Ohio camps. But Camp Ledgewood is one of two that will remain open.

The Trust for Public Land put together a deal similar to the Blossom sale back in the mid-90s that transferred the Richfield Coliseum to the park.
