Waterford River - Bowring Park
"Bowring Park is a familiar and beloved area of St. John's and is best-known for its picturesque landscapes, its royal swans, and its recreational areas.
This beautiful park was donated to the people of the City of St. John's in 1911 by Bowring Brothers Ltd. commemorating their 100th anniversary of commerce in Newfoundland. Bowring Park was officially opened by His Royal Highness, the Duke of Connaught in 1914."
