Romantic ice skating

What a fine place to skate by music and candlelight lights.
It is romantic in wintertime to play and skate.
In summer wonderful music activities and more.
This is a great location in the city of St. John’s.

Such a beautiful Outdoor Open Space
Aug 2019
The park was full of people & families, of all ages, doing a full range of activities from walking, swimming, biking to sitting back taking in the sun, chatting or enjoying a picnic!

And yes of course, some were feeding the ducks at the famous Duck Pond!

The Park has many significant Monuments throughout, rich in history, it was great to take time to read the plaques & get in touch with the local past. Going strong since the 1920's!

Peaceful well kept park
Jun 2019 • Solo
I visited during a morning in June. The park was quiet at that time and very peaceful. The tulips were blooming and were beautiful. I loved the Peter Pan statue especially I have seen its "twin" in Kensington Gardens in London. It was a great place to get some exercise in a peaceful setting. I imagine in the summer it can get busy.

Take the Southbrook Trail
Jun 2019 • Couples
Lovely park, well kept with many places to walk or picnic at.

For me the best part of the park is the Southbrook Trail. It’s about 1.5 km and easy to walk, and it will appeal to all ages.

Trail winds through woods, bridges over the river and ends near the main road. It will take about 30 minutes and it’s a leisurely walk.

Best time is early in the morning when you’ll have the place to yourself to enjoy the wildlife and the scenery.
