Orienteering is suitable for anybody and everybody, regardless of age or physical ability. It can be as simple as a leisurely walk, jog or run in any environment; parks, heartlands, shopping mall, etc. One of the key appeals of park orienteering is that it does not require any special or technical knowledge or skill, unlike adventure and endurance races, where risks involved are higher. The easy accessibility to neighbourhood parks, with open terrain and paved running tracks, open the opportunity to encourage those with physical disabilities to partake in the sport as well.
Orienteering serves as an ideal fun and active family bonding experience where parent and child learn basic orienteering skills and techniques. The sense of the family achievement in learning new skills and participating in an event together, makes a nice stroll in the park all the more rewarding.
