Orienteering is for everyone – Permanent courses to try in Greater Manchester parks
The joy of orienteering is getting from A to B by whichever route you choose. Orienteering is inclusive: anyone aged from 8 to 80 can give it go. Orienteering is usually an outdoor activity, but it can be done indoors too. Parks are good because in addition to the parkland they often have paths and facilities.
There is no reason why anyone, including someone with a disability, who wants to get from A to B their way shouldn’t take to orienteering.
The Tree Trail has been designed as a web-based app which can be used by anyone with a smartphone or handheld device. There are three distinct trails with more than 50 trees to discover spread across the University’s Oxford Road Campus and North Campus as well as Whitworth Park.
