I heard that on the radio but I don't know what that means. Replace it how? Replace it where?

One of the main functions of parkland in a big city is to give people a place to get away from the bustle and noise of the city. In Chicago even the lakefront doesn't serve that function very well with LSD and the number of people using the bike paths. There is a real need to have large contiguous 20 acre blocks of park, so there is a real sense of peace and seclusion in the middle of that.

Taking 20 acres and replacing it with 20 1 acre parks isn't the same thing. Not even close.
