CLEVELAND (AP) - Commissioners at Cleveland Metroparks are getting details on an ecological restoration plan for a former golf course.

The Conservation Fund, a Virginia-based private nonprofit conservation group, paid more than $14 million for the Acacia Reservation and then deeded it over to the Metroparks.

The Plain Dealer reports Thursday (https://bit.ly/1nsa7YK ) the arrangement includes a requirement that the park will never be used for golf and will return to nature instead.

The plan is being created by Metroparks staff and Biohabitats Inc., a company that specializes in conservation planning and ecological restoration.
