The southern portion of Pippy Park (south of the Trans Canada Highway) is laced with a network of well-marked walking paths. The Grand Concourse Authority (GCA) has developed over 120 km of walking trails in the St. John’s metropolitan area. No less than 11 of these walks are located in Pippy Park. The 3.1 km Long Pond Walk, for example, winds gently through a forest, passing beside a rich marsh that is the most important area for waterfowl in the region.
These well-maintained walks feature interpretative storyboards, rest stops, and natural or cultural points-of-interest. An informative handbook and map of the walks are available from the GCA and retailers.
Start in Pippy Park, and experience a Walker’s Paradise.
