    that / it

    ''That is the park where we used to play football.''
    ''It is the park where we used to play football.''

    What is the difference between the sentences above?

    I have no English teacher, I try to improve my language on my own. Thanks for your help.

    ***NOT A TEACHER***

    Hello.


    No sentence is correct without a final punctuation mark.

    Re: that / it

    That would depend on context. If you are inside the park, you would likely say "This is the park..."; if you are walking past the park, you would likely say "that is the park...". But if someone asked about the significance of the park, you might say "It is the park...". These designators are quite variable.
