St. John's, Newfoundland

Octagon and Neil’s Pond

The trails around Octagon and Neil’s Pond in Paradise, just southwest of St. John’s, are favorites of the local running club. You can form a “figure 8” formation around both ponds on the gravel and concrete paths. Start out at the Paradise Community Center, and head along the Newfoundland Trailway in either direction. To the left, the Octagon Pond Trail starts about a block after the Town Hall, on the right. In the other direction, the Neil’s Pond Walk branches off from the Newfoundland Trailway shortly after Burnaby Street. Combining both trails will result in a pleasant 7.4 km (4.6 miles).
