Construction is underway on the Arboretum Walk (North) T’Railway in Mount Pearl. The 4.75-kilometre route will be upgraded with a new 3-metre wide compacted granular surface. This section is part of the Newfoundland T’Railway Provincial Park and the Great Trail (formerly Trans-Canada Trail).
We apologize for any incovenience and ask that you please use caution on the trail during this time. Construction will be completed mid-August.
The Bowring Park Foundation and the City of St. John’s are looking for input into the question: “What’s next for Bowring Park?” The engagement process kicks off May 6, 2019 and runs until mid-June.
Grand Concourse Authority has been involved with planning, design, and development of the historic park for over 20 years, including the Waterford River T’Railway , Duck Pond Rehabilitation, Master Planning, and Midstream projects.
There are numerous opportunities to provide feedback including at engagestjohns.ca and in-person at Bowring Park and other key locations throughout the City
This trail is found in the sheltered valley of the Waterford River in Mount Pearl between Park Avenue and Topsail Road. Explore the historic river which drains a 72 km2 area in Paradise, Mount Pearl, and St. John's. Four bridges allow views of the scenic cascades and rushing water. These trails were established by the Rotary Club to showcase the river and make it more accessible and enjoyable for residents. The Grand Concourse has been upgrading the approximately 1 km route and its bridges and boardwalks since 2016 on behalf of the City of Mount Pearl.
There are several access points: behind Mary Queen of the World school, Forest Avenue, Clove Brae/Greenwood Crescent, and Park Avenue across from Avery Place.
