Permanent Orienteering Course Open at People’s Park

Published: November 21, 2018

WSP in association with Waterford Orienteers recently completed the installation of the Permanent Orienteering Course in the People’s Park, Waterford. Funded by Dormant Accounts through Sport Ireland.

There are three different courses available in Peoples Park, including a ‘Wheelo course’. This ensures that the course is accessible to all and fun for all the family.

Orienteering is an inclusive sport where you need to find your way from one point to another using only a map and your brain. Each course consists of a series of checkpoints that are mapped out and must be found in the correct order. The aim is to complete the course as quickly as possible!

The ‘real life’ problem solving skills experienced in orienteering can help improve participants navigation, communication and social skills.

Thank you to Waterford City and County Council for use of their land and also their staff who helped to install the course. Now let the fun begin!

The orienteering course is open to all – families, individuals, clubs, uniformed groups and schools.

To tackle your chosen distance:
1. Download the map for your chosen distance (as well as the answer sheet for checking at the end);
2. Find the controls in the order shown on the map;
3. Complete the numbered code of the marker post in the corresponding box;
4. At the end of the Course, check your answers are correct
(by referring to the answer sheet);
5. Good luck and enjoy!
