When building a recreational facility, several factors should be considered. These factors should align to the social, environmental, as well as accessibility aspects of the recreational facility. Before the local government authority embarks on the project, some analysis has to be done. The first crucial analysis that should be made encompasses an evaluation of the social factors and how they relate to the facility. The social factors that should be analyzed before the project starts include income, the population, as well as the age demographics. Income is a crucial factor to consider; the facility should be affordable to all area residents who will benefit from the facility. In terms of the population, the facility should be accessible to many residents. With regard to age demographics, the facility should serve the needs of children, the youth, as well as the elderly (Steiner et. al., 2007).
The other analysis that ought to be made should be based on the accessibility of the facility; the facility should be located in a place where it can be accessed by most members of the population. People should have ease of access to the facility whether they walk, ride, or drive to the facility. The facility should not be located far away from the main roads; this way, many people will have a chance to visit the facility. Another analysis that should be conducted before taking on this project includes considering the environmental factors. Environmental factors play a crucial role in determining the sustainability of the land. The environmental factors to consider are the soil type, as well as the space that the local government requires to set up the new facility. The soil should be sustainable to ensure that the structures to be set up are permanent. In addition, there should be adequate space, which will house all the facilities to be established within the recreational facility (Steiner et. al., 2007).
