Going Home Slowly - St. John's in Bowring Park

June 18, 2014  •  1 Comment

We arrived in St. John's early enough to take a drive with my friend Dave and see some of the sights. The first place we went was Bowring Park. It is one of the prettiest parks I have seen since leaving England. Manicured gardens, water fowl, fountains, statues, bridges, monuments and a tumbling brook are all part of the Bowring Park experience. There is a lot of history contained in the these beautiful gardens including a memorial listing the names of 591 soldiers from the Newfoundland Regiment, 114 sailors from the Newfoundland Royal Naval Reserve and 115 from the Merchant Marine. I would have enjoyed spending more time there but we had many other places to visit on our whirlwind tour.
