There are lots of parks in St. John's. The largest is Pippy Park but not far from the city center is Bowring Park. Bowring Park has lovely gardens and paths, and also has recreational facilities like playing fields, picnic areas, tennis courts and a public swimming pool.
Bowring park is a beautiful place... to visit... have a picnic.. Bring your kids... go swimming or just enjoy the birds... But watch out the pidgions might think you are a litter box
