  • Bowring park is a lovely spot in the city for walking, running, skiing or snowshoeing. It is beautiful all year round and the grounds are always well maintained. There are two duck ponds, a swimming pool, splash pad, tennis courts, lawn bowling and lovely walking trails. The old railway bed, "the trailway, runs through the park, which leads downtown, a flat trail great for biking. There is a lot of history in the park, a great place to spend the day exploring.
  • Bowring Park is one of my favorite places in the city! The park is huge and is a great place for walking. It's absolutely beautiful no matter what time of year it is. In the summer it's lush and green and full of beautiful flowers. They have a water park and pool area for children to enjoy as well. Lots of room to lay out and enjoy the sun, or have picnics, etc. In the fall, the place is gorgeous with all the fall colours, and in the winter it's just as nice! A walk through the park at night in the winter to see all of the beautiful Christmas lights is a must. There are also hundreds of ducks in the pond there that you can feed all year round. Great place to take your children, pets, or just to enjoy on your own!
  • Great gathering place for Pokémon Go! enthusiasts and anyone else willing to 'get out there' to enjoy a little slice of the scenery and history St. John's, Newfoundland has to offer [:=
  • Bowring Park is a gem nestled in the middle of the city. A great place to escape to nature and enjoy the outdoors. Walking trails, green spaces, statues and ponds make this park a wonderful getaway. Plenty of parking as well.
  • Lovely scenery, beautiful spot for a picnic or to walk your dog. Fun to feed the ducks.
