Welcome to Pippy Park

Pippy Park Covid-19

March 24th, 2020

The Park’s geographical area is 3400 sq. acres.  We presently see continued responsible visitation by many in open space areas such as the Three Pond Barrens and many of the Grand Concourse trails throughout the Park. Similar to the City of St. John’s directives we presently have no plans to close large passive open spaces, Grand Concourse trails or any trails in the Park at this time.

Similar again to the City, we plan to close our two small playgrounds (Nagle’s Place and the Campground.)

The City of St. John’s had previously closed the Winter Activity Center (North Bank Lodge) to the public and grooming of the trails in the Campground has been discontinued. Our Golf Course Clubhouse is a licensed facility with limitations on the size of gatherings and has been temporarily closed while we wait further direction.

We will continue to be compliant to the advice of Government and the Joint Public Health Response Committee on our Covid-19 responses and direction as Pippy Park works through this difficult time.

Thank you,

Management C.A. Pippy Park Commission

Pippy Park is one of Canada’s great urban parks. A wide mantle of green at the northern boundary of St. John’s, Pippy Park offers an oasis of tranquility, spectacular views of the city and the Atlantic Ocean, a park-like setting for our institutional partners, and year-round recreational opportunities.

"A unique and diverse park where people of all ages and all walks of life can come to enjoy activities that gratify the senses, stimulate the mind, and challenge the body."
--Pippy Park Master Plan focus group participants
