Lots of amazing creatures and your kids can touch almost all of them...facility releases the creatures back to the ocean at the end of every season too!

The park consists of a manicured garden, sports facilities (renovated pool, tennis courts) and a 3 km hike following a stream, later climbing up to the pool level and outdoor theatre (summer venue) through woods.
The day I was there, lots of kids playing in the splash pad, tons of people in the park's pool just beyond the splash pad, beautiful trails throughout, benches, a refreshment stand as well.

Well done for the city for the great beauty restoration done on this easy walking trail around the lake, it is simply a pleasure to enjoy!

We greatly enjoyed the walking trails - if you walk them all, it will take a couple of hours, and will take in various ecosystems such as bog, marsh, and different types of forest.
A easy hike to the top of the mountain and you reach an unforgettable view of the Pippys Park.

#8 of 14 Nature & Parks in St. John's
Have always loved the peaceful easy feeling of this park and its location across from the Newfoundland National War Memorial harking back to an era when Newfoundland was a nation before Canada joined it.
There are also two great statues of the province's "national dogs" - the Newfoundland and the Labrador Retriever - nice views over the harbour and a short walk to the National War Memorial.
