“Such a nice place”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Very scenic. Funny the next day saw it on the CBC as part of a documentary. Recognized it right away. Visit the Quidi Vidi Brewery while there. Check on beer tasting times. Also have a kitchen party there most evenings.

“Nicely kept trail”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

We walked from Quidi Vidi back to St. Johns and used the lake trail. I was amazed how nicely kept it was, and it was uncrowded.

“A good walk on a winter's (or a summer's) day”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

I did this trail on a blustery but sunny day in December and it was a good, invigorating walk around an interesting lake. Good parking right beside it and good views as you briskly circumnavigate the lake.

“Nice break from the town”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

This is not from downtown but is a nice place for a walk or run to get out of downtown. The trial curves around the lake, which was lovely. We also toured the adjacent residential neighbourhood of older homes. Very nice to get out.

“Easy walking”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Easy walking or running. The trail was mostly small gravel but had a small section of boardwalk. Area was well maintained. Rest rooms were available.
