Does it, really? In what way? Have you actually walked through this part of Jackson Park recently? Wooded Island and the surrounding lagoon have been completely reconstructed in the last five years, and birds and birders flock there in spring and fall. The current athletic field is well-used. This area of the park is very popular with picnickers and African-American family gatherings.

If the recreational needs of Jackson Park need to be reassessed or improved, why not do that through the Jackson Park Framework Plan rather than announce three big projects (presidential center, new super golf course, Yoko Ono artwork) that don't have anything to do with each other and then try to juggle things like Cornell Drive around so they fit?
