  • Course Status

  • New!!  We’ve picked this ideal-for-beginners park to create a Training Pack to go with the How-To Videos.
  • New! You can now record your run using the MapRun App on your Smartphone. Score points and share your results too. Buy the MapRun bundle.  See the Smartphones page for details.
  • Last checked October 2021 … everything OK. 
  • Note that the Hall Gardens (separate map) have been re-opened (9am-8pm says the notice) despite ongoing repair work on the hall. What is probably temporary fencing has made control Q inaccessible.
  • Orienteering map details

  • Wythenshawe Park orienteering map:   A4 Landscape, Scale 1:7500. Major update August 2020.
  • Hall Gardens map: A4 Portrait, Scale 1:1000. Last updated 2011.
  • Start/Finish

    The Start/Finish is a fence bend, just outside the car park. You will have passed the Hall, Hall Gardens and Cafe on your left as you drive in from the main road.

    Wythenshawe Park Start/Finish just outside the main Car Park CP, showing the route in from Wythenshawe Road.
