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.

The Permanent course is being refurbished / repainted over August > October 2014.

STAG first used this park in 1999 for a Night Event and it proved to be a resounding success.
The former nature trail has been converted into the permanent orienteering course and one can expect to take approximately 40 minutes to walk the whole course.
A tricky venue despite its relatively small size.

Rhododendron clearance completed.

72 acres in area.
Significant wildlife including grey squirrels.
