Settlement hierarchies can be found globally and are simply the ordering of settlements by size and importance. Any given location will tend to have a greater number of smaller settlements (villages and small towns) and a smaller number of large urban centres.
Larger settlements have larger populations and people will travel to them to use their services. This means that larger urban centres can usually sustain higher order services.
This pattern is true for sporting and touristic services where a region will tend to have a larger number of smaller services such as neighbourhood parks or gyms and a smaller number of national parks, major stadiums and national parks.
Study the leisure/touristic facilities in the table.
When looking at the distribution, it might be easiest to divide the city into urban zones, like in the Burgess Model.

Transition zone: The old industrial area in HICs. Might contain cinemas, bowling alleys, shopping centres, sports centres.
