Team Orienteering Challenge BallyPark
Equipped with a compass the teams search for checkpoints in the park or in the surrounding area. Once a checkpoint is found, the guide hands the team a task (mini project). The aim is to solve that task in about 20 minutes. At each checkpoint the teams find directions to the next destination. The tasks can only be solved successfully if all team members contribute and pull on the same string.
The orienteering challenge is not physically demanding. It takes about two to five minutes to get from one checkpoint to the next.
Discover picturesque BallyPark
The group moves around in the beautiful BallyPark in Schönenwerd. There is a lot be explored: two lakes, the river Aare, a side branch of the river Aare as well as exciting buildings e.g. a pile dwelling, the Chinese pavilion and a rock cave. Interesting too that BallyPark is said to be the first English landscape park in Switzerland. Carl Franz Bally established the park in 1868 as a recreational area for his workers and the locals.
