Sedgwick County offers Wichita Greyhound Park at Auction
Today, Lange Realty presented two tracts of land owned by Sedgwick County at auction. The sale was held at noon at Sedgwick County Fire Station #32, 7750 Wild West Dr., Park City. These two tracts make up what is known as the Wichita Greyhound Park.
Tract 1 is 82 acres of commercial land with leased properties through 2039. This is what the Wichita Greyhound Park buildings and parking lot sit on. The winning bid of Tract 1 went to Mr. Phil Ruffin for $1.6 million.
Tract 2 is 34.86 acres of commercial land off of I-135. Mr. Johnny Stevens won the bid for Tract 2 for $150,000.
Sedgwick County Commission Chairman David Dennis commended the process stating he was, “thrilled with the sale of these two properties. I look forward to seeing this area develop in the future under the ownership of Mr. Ruffin and Mr. Stevens.”
These two entities will assume ownership of their respective properties upon closing, on or before August 17, 2018. Sedgwick County has owned these two tracts for decades.
