In September 2016, Murray’s was involved in the first-ever PARK(ing) Day initiative in Downtown St. John’s. A temporary park was created within a parking space to showcase the importance of green space and public space within the urban core. This year, on Friday, September 15th, PARK(ing) Day will take place again, in partnership with the Wandering Pavillion. Drop by between 10am-7pm for some activities, or to simply enjoy the park! The park will be located at 140 Water Street (beside Home on Water). For more information, see the Facebook event here.

Join us on Sundays throughout August for our new Farm & Forage sessions with our guest forager, Shawn Dawson of Barking Kettle.
