Our family originally wasn't going to visit Victoria Park given all the other things to do in the area. We ended up with a few hours in the evening & stopped by. Glad we did! Well-kept walking trails & beautiful views.

This was absolutely one of the best parks I've enjoyed. Pathways are paved and follow the river as it winds through the woods. There is a wonderful waterfall, plenty of varying elevations foe those who want the exercise. I'm jealous we don't have any thing...More

I was not expecting to find a park like this in Truro! It was gorgeous. Amazing waterfalls. Very well maintained pathways and stairs. There are a bit of hills and stairs throughout the paths I walked along. It was all very, very pretty though. Excellent...More

I spent a nice part of a day here. Beautiful trails, waterfalls, and woods. Even saw several baby otters. Once inside the park, it's hard to believe it's in the middle of town. Playground looks amazing for those with kids. Especially the water jet area.

Beautiful park with excellent facilities and trails. Clean no litter. How I wish Brits could be as clean and enviromentally friendly as Canadians

This park provides a wonderful opportunity to get away from the traffic, to hike alongside a small stream and to experience nature, flowers, birds, and waterfalls. Here the harried tourist can forget about getting lost and simply unwind and feel the sunshine on one's shoulder.

You can walk to the waterfall and back to the parking lot with a stroller, but to make a circuit you have to do stairs.
