STAG DP5 Thurs 16th Feb Dawsholm Park No.562

DP5 @ Dawsholm Park. 10 maps now reserved; 10 remaining.

Choose the option that best suits your training needs. The paths in Dawsholm Park are in the process of being relayed & are therefore a bit spongy & soft.

Do your own thing with the 15 controls available or take on the 3 loop or 5 loop challenges.

The 5 loop option requires you to visit either all the 30s40s50s60s70s complete group at a time.

The 3 loop option requires you to visit all controls ending in “1” then “2” then “3” in that order.

We may also be using the New Permanent Course in some way!

Map of 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.
Woodland predominately oak and beech.
Kelvin Walkway accessible from NE corner of park.
Play area.
