 Motives: A city is a socio-urban system. In urban development, emphasis is placed on housing needs, which leads to the development of housing estates. Although housing estates are poorly rated in Europe, they are still attractive places to live in Poland. However, they do not always meet the residents’ needs. This is especially true of seniors.

Aim: Six housing estates in different districts of Lublin were analyzed. An attempt was made to determine whether recreational and leisure facilities in the examined housing estates are conducive to senior activities, whether they are influenced by the time of construction, and what measures can be implemented to improve the accessibility of these spaces.

Results: In contrast to newly built neighborhoods, older block housing is more abundant in green areas and public spaces that encourage active and passive recreation. Recreational development in housing estates lacks facilities for diverse groups of seniors. Active modernization measures are not being implemented to improve their functioning.
