Hanley Forest Park

Central Forest Park "O" Challenge

A FREE event to mark the opening of a Permanent Orienteering Course and part of the City of Stoke on Trent Walking Festival.

We supply an attractive coloured map specially drawn for this event, and as much help as you need. You can navigate around yourself and take your time looking for easier to find posts, or prove yourself against the clock by finding them all. This is a fun challenge for all ages and abilities who enjoy the open air.

You can have extra help as we will have guided walks to show you how to find some of the marker posts. These will start at 11:00 am, 12:00 pm and 1:30 pm

From Town Road in Hanley take the B5049 (Chell Street) towards Smallthorne. After about 800 m turn left into the car park.

New area

Take the A50 from Burslem to Tunstall and turn right at traffic lights into the Boulevard (A527). Where this swings left into Victoria Park Road, go straight across into Queens Park Avenue between Tunstall Park and the Sacred Heart RC Church. Turn left into a concealed drive immediately before a Methodist Church (about 20, plus 6 disabled, parking spaces). Additional parking with care along the South side of Queens Avenue and other park perimeter roads.

An alternative approach is from the B5049 Hanley to Biddulph Road. 350 m after the Haywood Hospital, turn left immediately after a Co-op into Greenbank Road. This descends steeply to Queens Park Avenue.
