Nashville city leaders are looking again to expand the city's park system.

The Metro Parks Board is considering the purchase of the Nashboro Village golf course.

The golf club closed for the winter last month.

Park officials tell the Nashville City Paper the owners have agreed to sell the land for $595,000.

The park board will vote on the purchase plan next month. The golf course has been in operation since 1975.

If it passes, this would be the city's third park purchase in recent months. Nashville has already acquired the Cornelia Fort Airpark and the Ravenwood Country Club in Hermitage.
