In the event that the parklands to be dedicated by the town of Walton pursuant to this act are not equal to or greater than the fair market value of the parkland to be acquired, the town of Walton shall dedicate the difference of the fair market value of the lands to be alienated and the lands to be dedicated for the acquisition of addi- tional parklands and/or for capital improvements to existing park and recreational facilities.
