Bannerman Park is the oldest and most historic park in the province and is currently undergoing a major revitalization plan. Included in the plan is a new pool house, a splash pad, a new playground, a Garden of Memories and a new pavilion. Encircling the new pavilion is an ice skating ring, new to the park and unique in both its presence in the city and its design.

An ingenious loop for an uncommon outdoor skating skating experience; many a winter’s day will be spent skating in lazy circles with friends and family on this one-of-a kind skating surface featuring a state of the art underground refrigeration system. In the warmer months, in-line skating and cycling will be the order of the day.

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 year-round recreational opportunities.
