The Meaning of Facility

What does facility mean?
Properly, facility is the ease with which something can be done <a double axel performed with facility> or the physical things that make something easier or possible <recreational facilities>. But the word has been so overused for building as to become meaningless <school facilities

[read buildings]>; avoid that sense in formal writing.
