SUMMER IN MOUNT PEARL
Posted on Wednesday June 29, 2016
Located on the northeast coast of the Avalon Peninsula, it’s a community driven city on the Atlantic coast. Whether you’re looking for an outdoor adventure or some family fun, check out our favourite things to do this summer in Mount Pearl:
Taking place at St. David's Field, celebrate Canada’s birthday with children's entertainment, live music and birthday cake! Admission is free with a non-perishable food item.
The Grand Concourse links a series of rivers, lakes ponds, parks and green spaces in the region, and at over 125 km in length, there’s plenty of opportunity to explore!
If you’re up for it, Canada’s easternmost point makes for a scenic day trip to a truly picture perfect coastal location.
Enjoy the city’s birthday during the Mount Pearl City Days Celebrations. The weekend will be jam packed with family activities, events and outdoor concerts, many of which are free with a non-perishable food donation to the local food bank.
Atlantic salmon, brown trout, or sea-run brook trout, the Southeast Placentia River is the place to be from June to September for some superb angling.
If you’re looking for an educational family adventure, book a guided tour to view the fossils of the oldest creatures found anywhere on Earth! The Ediacara biota, lived 575 million years ago when all life was in the sea, and you can view them in the sandstone of Mistaken Point - cool!
Every Monday night in July, head to St. John’s for a free outdoor movie night at Solomon’s Lane. Starting July 4th, the first fill will be the blockbuster hit Star Wars - the Force Awakens. It starts at dusk, but make sure to get there early and bring some lawn chairs to save your spot.
If you’re up for some good vibrations, the legendary group are coming to the Mile One Centre on June 29th.
Although the date is TBD, this family friendly event usually takes place at the end of August in Centennial Park. Starting at dusk, all you need is a blanket and chair, and a non-perishable food item for entry.
With over 60 kms of beautiful walkways to explore, the Mount Pearl Trailway will link you through all neighbourhoods and parks throughout the city.
