Rickerby Park

On the banks of the River Eden to the North East of Carlisle city centre lies Rickerby Park where Border Liners Orienteering Club have established a new permanent orienteering course.

There are 30 control sites throughout the park, with suggested courses of 1.4km, 2.4km and 3.5km.

Rickerby Park is contained within a meander of the River Eden and is predominantly flat short grass with scattered copses of trees. It was opened in 1932 as a memorial to the fallen in the Great War of 1914-1918. Hadrians Wall National Trail runs through Rickerby Park.

The park is popular with Carlisle residents, especially joggers & dog walkers. There may be livestock loose in the park so please keep dogs under control.
