Octavian Droobers Orienteering Club have introduced permanent orienteering courses in country parks in 10 locations around Coventry, Warwickshire and Daventry, Northamptonshire. It is a great way to discover our lovely parks in a socially distanced way. Searching and locating the checkpoint posts placed around the parks, using specially drawn maps, a bit like a treasure hunt, is a great way to exercise and get fit outdoors in the fresh air.

A full list of these venues and how to download the maps free of charge are on the club website www.octavian-droobers.org - see newcomers page. For additional information about the Permanent Orienteering Courses please visit websites of the parks for latest opening times, car parking and other facilities.
