Map of Kelvingrove Park MapKelvingrove Park Map

First used by STAG in 1989, the area is a regular on the “Come & Try” circuit.
In 1999, the Park World Tour held an event in Kelvingrove which attracted the World’s Elite orienteers to Glasgow.
The course utilises the history of the park as there are no additional markers, only the permanent features to navigate to !

There is a permanent orienteering course here.
