Devon Orienteering


Plymouth Central Park

Permanent Orienteering Course

The permanent orienteering course at Plymouth Central Park has been updated! This is as a result of a partnership between Plymouth City Council, Argyle Community Trust and Devon Orienteering Club. 

Why not give it a go! For details see below. 

The POC will give members of the public an opportunity to try out the sport. It is suitable for people of all ages and abilities and available for individuals, families and groups, including those in schools, colleges and other settings.

It also provides an opportunity for people who are familiar with the sport to train, coach others and progress.

Courses:   There are a range of suggested courses, colour-coded in sequence of length, amount of climb, and difficulty from white to red:

  • Easy (White Course)
  • Moderate (Yellow Course)
  • Intermediate (Orange Course)
  • Harder (Light Green)
  • Longer (Red)
  • Wheelchair and Buggy Friendly (White Course Option 2)

In addition, one map shows all of the control sites within Central Park. You may wish to plan your own route.
