Pleasant little park in center of city
Jul. 2019 • Couples
This park is at the location where Sir Humphrey Gilbert lay claim to New Foundland and across the street from the War Memorial. It has some interesting plaques on New Foundland history along with a New Foundland dog. There is a nice view of the harbor. Not a must see, but a quiet rest stop to sit and relax for a little bit. At one time there may have been docks here.

A SPOT TO CHILL WITH A COUPLE OF BIG DOGS
Sep. 2019
This is a pleasant place to sit down. It is near the National War Monument, in the southeastern corner of the downtown core. It contains full sized depictions of Newfoundland and Labrador dogs. Read a book or people watch. You might be lucky enough to see a ship, even a cruise ship, coming or going.

Great Place for a Stroll
Jul. 2019 • Couples
Right next to the Harbor this is a beautiful small park for stroll and watch the boats/ships go by. The waterways leading from the ocean to the port is clearly visible. A good place to take lots of pictures.

Beautiful park on the Harbour, great for kids, great to sit and take it all in
Jul. 2019 • Solo
What a fantastic little park, on both sides of Water Street. Go here to visit the statues of Newfoundland's two most famous four-legged friends, the Newfoundland dog and the Labrador Retriever. Kids can get on top and go for a quick ride, or pretend to ride them. Plenty of benches and a beautiful view of the Harbour and Signal Hill on a clear day. Apparently, there are some musical performances during the summer in the park. This is also a nice place to watch the ships come and go in the Harbour. It's really a lovely park and a must stop, especially if you've been walking a lot exploring the city.

On the Cornerstone of the British Empire
Jul. 2019 • Solo
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. Recently it dawned on me that Harbourside Park is where Sir Humphrey Gilbert laid the Cornerstone of the British Empire in 1538. I learned this thanks to the Hop On - Hop Off Tour Service that operates close by adjacent to Raymond’s Restaurant.

Nice small park
Jun. 2019 • Family
This is a small park with information about the 2 breeds originated from Newfoundland, which are the Labrador and Newfoundland dog, of course. We can find a statue of each of these breeds, and we can read the history of these breeds. It is surrounded of a cute green area, and we can view the harbour.

History walk with ocean view
Aug. 2018 • Family
This is a must see ..a short walk in downtown St. John’s..you will be able to read lots of information on the signs and photos posted on this walkway...learn about Nfld fishery and take in the view of the atkantic ocean..a prett6 spot to take pictures..you can sit on the wooden benches and view the Cabot tower and boats coming in and out of the harbour...lovely spot to relax and take in the sites ..I would take a snack and bottle water as there are no shops close to this area and you will want to spend at least an hour or more here
