Coronation Park was originally opened in the 1930 but was renamed Coronation Park in 1953 to commemorate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. The park covers just over 2 and a half hectares and is owned and maintained by Rotherham Borough Council.
There are 3 orienteering courses to choose from: very easy (0.5km), easy (1.1km) and medium (1.4km) plus the "Find them all challenge" (how quickly can you find all the controls). Answer sheets available.
There is also a Maprun option for those with an android or iphone. Download the app here. The map will appear on your phone and as you reach the control your phone will register you have found the control.
