park[edit]

Rfd-redundant "An enclosed parcel of land stocked with animals for hunting, which one may have by prescription or royal grant." seems redundant to "A tract of ground kept in its natural state, about or adjacent to a residence, as for the preservation of game, for walking, riding, or the like."

They don't seem redundant. The challenged definition says nothing about location or the non-hunting uses. The unchallenged one says nothing about "prescription or royal grant" or that the land is stocked for hunting. The definitions may be dated and not written to our preferences, but neither encompasses the other. DCDuring TALK 11:43, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
