Overview

Every child who has ever visited the Peter Pan statue in Bowring Park, St. John's, swears it is magic. They know that the mice, squirrels, rabbits, and fairies are never in the same place as the last time they visited. Some say they've seen Peter wink at them, and others believe they've heard the soft whispering sounds of a flute. Are the stories true? Is the Peter Pan statue really magic? Or are the tales just childhood fantasies? The Secret of Bowring Park is a story of magic, a celebration of eternal childhood, and a heartwarming tale of the bond between sisters. Join sisters Elizabeth and Natalie on their adventure at the Peter Pan statue and learn the real secret of Bowing Park.
