Please contact Joe Donkers, Accounting Technician, at 895-5666 or [email protected] to receive your sign up key.

Orienteering

View or download our Winter Carnival Orienteering Challenge map here!

Description: Orienteering is an outdoor activity that challenges participants to use their navigation and map reading skills to find all 10 orienteering “signs” located in the park. The “signs” are pictures of animals attached on trees throughout the park (picture sizes range from wallet sized to about half a sheet of paper).

Objective: All 10 of the signs locations are represented on the map by a different yellow number, your job is to navigate to all 10 locations and find the corresponding item for each number. For example, if I navigated to #6 and found a Beaver picture I would then write Beaver in the #6 space.

Submit all answers to [email protected] to see how many you got correct!

Rules: 

  1. All signs are attached to trees.
  2. All of the signs are visible from the walking path, no more than 5ft off the ground and 5ft from the trail.
  3. Do not touch, take or move signs please!

Trail Multi-Use Guidelines

Many of our Winter Carnival events take place in the beautiful local parks, and we are excited to see many residents enjoying the winter season in PCSP!

Did you know our park trails allow for cross country skiing and fatbike use? Check out the following Trail Multi-use Guidelines and get outside to have fun this season!

  • Trails and Park are use at own risk.
  • Be aware and vigilant of other trail users at all times.
  • Please keep a slow-to-moderate speed, be prepared to slow down or stop at any moment.
  • Reduce speeds when going around turns and trail intersections.
  • Keep to the right side of the path, allowing oncoming and faster users to pass on the left.
  • Walkers should give right of way to skiers/bikers, as its can be harder for them to stop & start.
  • Trails are not groomed, please use caution when using the trails.
  • Those on bikes are recommended to use a bell to alert persons on the trail.
  • Please stay on the trails at all times.
  • No motorized vehicles allowed.
