The relationship between urbanization and provision of leisure facilities in developing countries is examined, taking Nairobi, Kenya, as a case study. The growth of urban areas in Kenya has been phenomenal and there has been a widespread feeling that the performance of the agencies with regard to the provision and maintenance of recreational facilities has been below par. Reasons for the deficiency of recreational facilities in Nairobi include the lack of a recreation policy, uncontrollable high population growth rate, increasing urbanization and financial hardship by the local authority.
