CHAPTER ONE

1.1    INTRODUCTION

In all settlements, it is explicit that man should work and also play whenever he is free from established routines of work and domestic duties, and since man cannot work throughout the day, it then become necessary that during the free time man can engage himself in different forms of recreation activities.

Recreation has been regarded as an integral part of social life. It is growing important aspect of physical planning which is often neglected. The benefits derivable from recreation cannot be over looked. The average adult must ‘spend a certain number of hours daily at some kind of work in order to earn a living or to care for a family. The growing child must attend school regularly. Eating, sleeping and other task usually take a definite amount of time each day. But it is seldom necessary for people to devote all their time for this occupation. Most people have sometimes in which they do things for the sole reason that they find pleasure in doing them, such activities are called recreation.

Different people all over universe achieve varying forms of satisfaction from this different activities, whereas, some achieve theirs, outside their daily routine work and other achieve satisfaction during their daily route work. There are some other conflicting ideas in take and satisfaction for one individual to another makes the issue of recreation vague and ambiguous. This is because what serve as recreation for one man, may be an economic venture to another, where as to others, is a disgusting idea to be engaged in these activities.

As the estate are the new open and planned areas within Ilorin metropolis, that are suppose to have contained social life facilities such as recreational facilities are not applicable or in some cases not functioning.

Therefore, recreation cannot only gives pleasure but also helps to renew or recreate the mind, soul and body. For this reason, if well organized recreational facilities are provided for the estate, resident of the estate will be able to satisfy themselves by engaging in various recreational activities and they will also have the opportunity to develop their personalities and interacts to fullest possible extents.
