Grab your shoes or bike and have a go at orienteering

Christchurch’s annual Bottle Lake Forest Park Orienteering Day takes place this year on Sunday, February 20, with staggered starts between 10am and midday. This popular, free event aims to showcase the challenge and fun of orienteering.

Part of the SummerTimes festival of free outdoor entertainment, the Bottle Lake Forest Park Orienteering Day is a Christchurch City Council initiative held in conjunction with the Peninsula and Plains Orienteering Club, whose members plan the forest courses and help budding orienteers on the day. Mountain bike orienteering courses are also available to try on the day.

Stay and have a picnic with the family and enjoy the free face painting, bouncy castle, sausage sizzle, giveaways and spot prizes.
