Fall Colors in Bowring Park
This beautiful park was established in 1911 with a donation of 200 acres to the city of St. John's by the Bowring merchant family. The park has many scenic walking trails along the Waterford River, a swimming pool, tennis courts, picnic areas, and a lawn bowling field. There are several bronze statues including Peter Pan (a replica of the statue in Kensington Gardens in London) and "The Fighting Newfoundlander", a monument commemorating Newfoundland's soldiers.
