A sample size of 100 instead of expected minimum of 53 from maximum 2,650 estimated daily users of the nine standard recreational facilities in the State. A questionnaire was randomlyadministered to the users of the facilities in the State, to harness their views on need for U.D. in them. Data gathered were appropriately analysed. Findings showed that the facilities have good accessibility and usability. It was recommended that management and architects, among others involved with designing and constructing recreational facilities should ensure conformity to U.D. principles forimproved accessibility and usability for all users without discrimination.
