Watershed Use Restrictions

Bay Bulls Big Pond Watershed Area

The City of St. John’s reminds residents that our watershed areas are protected to ensure the safety of our water supply. While residents are encouraged to enjoy the trails around watershed for walking and hiking, the following uses are not permitted:

  • Wood cutting
  • Fires
  • Camping
  • Operating Motorized Equipment, such as ATVs
  • Boating
  • Fishing
  • Swimming

It is also important that pet owners pick up after their animals and ensure their pet is on a leash in order to keep them out of the water.

Appropriate use of the watershed will protect the integrity of the water supply; we are asking the public to respect the area, and to report any misuse by immediately calling Access St. John’s at 311 or 754-CITY (2489).
