Spanish term or phrase: paños de terreno
I'm translating an article about the need for turning some lands into national parks, and I came along this sentence: "La fundación X busca convertir esos paños de terreno en un parque nacional". I guess "paños de terreno" means plots of land or something of the sort, but I'm really not sure.
