    Semi colons seperate complete sentences, not individual clauses which constitute sentences. You should use commas to fulfill this function.

    Also, the sentence ends quite abruptly with "recreation". Perhaps "a recreational area for the locals" (or whatever would be appropriate to the context) would be better.
