  • Pippy Park is a large park located centrally in St. John's, NL. There are many different trails (the Long Pond loop is the perfect length for a walk), a campground, and the Suncor Energy Fluvarium located here. It's also a popular sliding destination during the Winter.

  • Love the walking trails.
  • Great trails for dog walks
  • Very scenic!
