The aim of this study is to review a literature survey on disabled recreation research. Recreation research in people with disabilities has become very popular in recent years. In parallel with the changing living conditions, the increase in the sensitivity towards people with disabilities has been reflected in the researches on this subject. Support for the promotion of recreational activities for people with disabilities can be considered as one of the most important results of these studies. According to World Health Organization data, the number of people with disabilities in the world increased in recent years. This increase reveals that societies should review their policies related to people with disabilities. We need to create suitable living conditions for people with disabilities to know that they feel free in society. One of the most important ways to improve the living conditions of people with disabilities is the creation of appropriate recreational areas.
