NEW Fun Orienteering activity in Promenade Park Maldon District Council has launched a new and fun activity at the Promenade Park called Xplorer.
Xplorer is the perfect outdoor activity for primary and pre-school children and their families to have fun and is in partnership with Sport England and British Orienteering.
Xplorer is a family friendly navigation challenge that is educational and fun and gives children a sense of adventure as they explore the Promenade Park to find the markers. It involves a healthy mix of physical activity and decision making that the whole family can enjoy together.
Using a simple map the aim is to find a number of markers that are located around the park. At each marker children need to identify what is pictured and enjoy learning a fun fact to tell their friends.
Older children will have fun competing against their friends or other family members whilst younger children will enjoy the excitement of successfully finding the markers.
Xplorer is perfect for children as they can have an adventure whilst running around in a safe and friendly environment. No experience of map reading is necessary and parents are encouraged to join in the fun!
Xplorer map packs are available from the Maldon TIC in Wenlock Way.
Throughout the year there will be special Xplorer themes such as Halloween, Christmas and Easter.
Why not take part in this year's Santa Fun Run in Maldon's Promenade Park on Sunday December 17. This annual event raises funds for Maldon's David Randall Foundation.
