STAG Autumn Series 1- Tues 12th Aug 2014 - Dawsholm Park

Our first event after the summer recess attracted an International field & the rain even went off !

Although the park was busy with around 80 Cross Country only 9 orienteers enjoyed the challenge of Dawsholm.

Gerry posed that question again “Why” can’t we attract more folk to orienteering” ?

Map of Glasgow - Dawsholm Park MapTerrain description

Dawsholm Park could well be described as ‘the nature lover’s park’ as there is much of interest to the nature enthusiast here. Large areas of the park have been left in a natural state.

STAG first used this park in 1999 for a Night Event and it proved to be a resounding success.

The NEW permanent orienteering course consists of 10 wooden control posts & available early 2017.

A tricky venue despite its relatively small size.

Rhododendron clearance completed.

Park History:

72 acres in area.
Significant wildlife including grey squirrels.
Area left in natural state.
