Recreational Park Series 

The Toronto Orienteering Club invites you to orienteer in Toronto city parks. These informal, recreational events are for everyone – there will be courses for both beginners and experienced orienteers. If you’ve never orienteered before, someone will be on-hand to show you the basics. (Beginner Clinics are also available at some events). Come and see how easy it is to start orienteering and enjoy the outdoors this summer. You’ll discover how interesting our many beautiful city parks can be while getting some good exercise.

For more information, you can contact the meet director of the event by e-mail (click on the name), or email Malcolm Goddard (Park Series Coordinator).

Registration is at the event site. You can start anytime, and go at your own pace. At the park, look for the orienteering flag:  that marks the meeting place.

New, for TOC members only: If you find you can’t attend a meet, but would like to run the course, send an email to the event coordinator. We’ll provide you with a PDF of the map that you can print to run at your convenience.

Other Costs: Map case – $0.25, Extra Map – $1.00, Compass Rental – $1.00 plus $5.00 deposit.
