Gabriel Park Permanent Orienteering Course

Gabriel Park is a large park in Southwest Portland near Multnomah Village. Here you'll find a nice blend of rolling hills, sports fields, the beautiful SW Community Center, a large community garden and orchard, dog parks, and a beautiful streamside canyon with lots of cedar trees. It's also the home of CROC's newest permanent orienteering course, so come out and give it a try!

This course is fairly short and the terrain not very demanding, so it's a good one if you were a beginner or want to try it with your family.

Unlike a normal O-course where the control points are flags placed the morning of the event, this permanent course uses fixed objects such as signs fire hydrants, bridges,etc. At each control point marked on the map, your question sheet has a multiple-choice question about that point. Answer it, then move to the next control.
