“Great spot for a stroll”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

Bowring Park is a short drive from downtown St.John's Newfoundland. It is well maintained nicely designed by a landscape architect who worked under the designer of Central Park in NYC and Mount Royal Park in Montreal.

They clear the walks in winter. It is a great spot for a picnic in summer.

“Nice Park”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

While this is a beautiful and fairly large park, the walkways are not all that interesting unless you like dirty duck ponds. Some interesting vegetation and the flowers are nice in the spring. Keep a look out for the large number of brown trout hiding under the bridges.

“Beautiful park!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

We are very lucky to have such a beautiful park right in the heart of the city! There are lots of activities to do there (swimming, skating, playground, feeding the ducks and swans, etc.), but the grounds are the highlight for me. Absolutely breath-taking any time of the year.

“Bowring Park: a treasure in the heart of St. John's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

Bowring Park is one of this city's treasures, so much green space, walking trails, the gorgeous Waterford River, even the kids' playground and swimming pool , all in a glorious and peaceful setting just minutes from downtown.We are fortunate to have this lovely park practically "on our doorstep".
