The word recreational is an adjective and is obtained from recreation. Recreation is past time or sport. Recreation refreshes one's mind or body. Such an activity is taken up after heavy work or strenuous activity. Anything that relates to recreation is addressed as recreational. For example: recreational swimming. Recreational describes swimming as an activity taken up as a past time. The person who takes up such an activity does not intend to develop it as a profession.

Another example: A recreational building. It implies a structure which holds the recreational activities. A recreational drug (narcotics) is used occasionally. It does not develop into an addiction. For example: recreational drug use can develop into drug addiction.
