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.
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.
