The three-kilometre long Seaside Park is 50 hectares wide and is one of the largest planted parks in Latvia. From the very start, the park was and still is a popular recreation place.
The orienteering route includes the major part of the Seaside Park and the area close to it, from the avenue Kūrmājas Prospekts to the Vaiņodes Street. There are in total 27 stationary control sites installed in the park, the urban environment and dunes.
It is possible to choose between a shorter and longer distance or to make your own route:
- The shortest distance consists of 14 control sites and is 3-km long. This distance is suitable for the orienteering beginners who just want to learn the basics and for families with children;
- The longest distance is 6.9-km long and includes 27 control sites, suitable for longer walking or running work-outs, with various complexity control sites, so basic orienteering skills will be useful for this matter;
- You can also choose the choice distance, adjusting the length of the distance and the order of visiting the control sites, or by visiting only part of the objects. It is important to mark at the starting and finishing points so that the number of sites visited and the time spent in the distance is recorded.
