Warinanco Park
This is a city park so there is little to no woods...mostly open areas with scattered trees, ball fields, trails and small point features. Scale is 1:4,000 and contour interval 2m. Map was made by OUSA in 2022 and this will be its "First Day of Issue" for public use. The Linden Navy Junior ROTC will be the host for the event. The Orange and Brown courses will have controls which are basically of White/Yellow course difficulty with a few more route choices, more controls and longer lengths than the White and Yellow courses. Yes, you are reading the climb right. 2m contours. Walkers will also enjoy the route decisions on Orange and Brown. Runners should expect some very fast times per km as long as they stay focused. There will be flush bathrooms a short walk from registration/start/finish. Only Orange and Brown courses cross the circular one-way road within the park. Orienteers should be careful when crossing this road as drivers do not always follow the posted speed limit signs. DVOA registration to open soon. Directions: From Westfield Avenue take Linden Road south 3 blocks to East 3rd Avenue. Turn left on East 3rd Avenue and follow it east for 2 blocks. Turn right on Warinanco Park road and follow the orienteering signs. Wariance Park road is one-way so if you miss the turn you will need to make a loop inside the park.
