Recreation Facilities

The Town of Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s is home to a number of indoor and outdoor recreational facilities available for visitors and residents to use.

Rainbow Gully Park
Behind the town’s municipal building, you will see one of two major Recreation Parks in the Town: Rainbow Gully Park! This park features a range of facilities for people of all ages to enjoy. The Rainbow Gully turf multipurpose field is fully equipped with lights, full-sized soccer nets, half-sized soccer nets, player seating, and built-in bleachers. The large Rainbow Gully Park playground is used year round by families from our community and beyond. The popular basketball court and softball field are often used for tournaments and leagues, as well as visitors dropping by for fun and games! The skate park is another favourite, especially for children and teens. Rainbow Gully is also a great place to test your botany identification skills or grow your own fresh, local vegetables in the community garden! 

Voisey’s Brook Park & Trail System
Along Indian Meal Line, you will see Voisey’s Brook Park, another of two major Recreation Parks in the Town! This park features a large 5km trail system, popular with families and people of all ages. Voisey’s Brook Park is especially popular amongst dog owners, as there are two dog parks located within the park – one for small breed and one for large breeds, both featuring sand and grass surface. Much of the Town’s softball takes place at Voisey’s Brook Park, as there is both a mini softball diamond (includes small infield and backstop with benches) and full sized softball field (national size Slo-Pitch field (300 feet), with lights, enclosed dugouts, in-ground bases). Other recreation facilities at this park include a large playground, a full soccer field and a mini soccer field, a skateboard park, and a multipurpose building.
