Parks, Playgrounds and Trails

The City of St. John's maintains over 3,000 hectares of open space, 138 playgrounds, four Municipal Parks, dozens of Community and Neighbourhood Parks, 23 sports fields, 11 dog parks, eight skate parks, Flowers in Bowring Parkand more than 100 kilometres of walking trails to provide residents and visitors with the opportunity to relax and enjoy nature in our city.

Our strategy for parks is outlined in the Parks and Open Spaces Master Plan, the resident-based vision for a parks and open space network within the City of St. John’s. It defines the future direction, policies, priorities and actions for the provision of passive and programmed open space use in the City of St. John’s.
