STAG wish to thank John and Krystian for their help and encouragement to use their wonderful facility - a model for other parts of the country to copy?
Just a pity that orienteers had no time for a wee game of putting, or tennis or badminton or even scoring a goal!
Once the permanent course is re-checked STAG intend to gift maps to the Hub for use on foot or on bike.
For most this was their first visit to Alexandra Park as it was last used in GPC 2006 when the 9 hole golf course was operating. This closed in 2020.
With the creation of The Alexandra Park Sport Hub by the Milnbank Housing Association, a tremendous local resource has been created less than 1km from my home.
Parking on Blochairn Rd worked well and thus the route to DCP was clear.
Course 1 could have been a wee bit longer but other ELTs look fine.
