Came for the Christmas light installation, which was very nice. There were many people here. As the installation wasn’t overly large, you could take your time strolling through …. very pretty.

This was a great visit to a park. The fountain pond was a great place where we had picnic lunch at a picnic table while watching the koi fish and ducks with their ducklings. Lots of trails to walk. Nice little waterfall. Must visit.

As recommended by a local, we went here one day and enjoyed a lovely morning walking the trails and checking out the various statues and monuments throughout the park. Lovely spot with the water flowing and small waterfalls to discover. Clearly loved by the locals.

One of the best city parks I've seen with a fantastic easy walking trail through the park. Nice mix of woodsy views, streams, waterfall and more.

This was the first time I visited Bowring park. It is simply an excellent place to hike, bike or just stroll leisurely and feed the pigeons. The park is meticulously maintained and very clean. It would be nice to have a place to buy a bottle of water or a snack but we had our supplies so we did not suffer.

What a fine place to skate by music and candlelight lights.
It is romantic in wintertime to play and skate.
In summer wonderful music activities and more.
This is a great location in the city of St. John’s.

The park was full of people & families, of all ages, doing a full range of activities from walking, swimming, biking to sitting back taking in the sun, chatting or enjoying a picnic!

And yes of course, some were feeding the ducks at the famous Duck Pond!

The Park has many significant Monuments throughout, rich in history, it was great to take time to read the plaques & get in touch with the local past. Going strong since the 1920's!

I visited during a morning in June. The park was quiet at that time and very peaceful. The tulips were blooming and were beautiful. I loved the Peter Pan statue especially I have seen its "twin" in Kensington Gardens in London. It was a great place to get some exercise in a peaceful setting. I imagine in the summer it can get busy.
