Map of Alexandra Park MapAlexandra Park Map

New permanent course installed & map updated. Launching in 2017.

The park was used for training in the formative years of STAG. Although small by day, by including the golf course it becomes a fine venue for night events.

There is a permanent orienteering course here.
