Truro's best feature

Amazing walking trails. Make sure to take the walk to the falls. The old Norway Spruce are beautiful. If you like mountain biking or hiking the reservoir trail is perfect.

This park features a deep ravine through which the creek flows, and a small waterfall. Very scenic place, so close to Truro downtown! You can go on a short or long hike in this large park. "Jacob's Ladder" got rid of some of our boys' steam - and mine!

Victoria Park is a great place for a walk in any season. I took my son and nephew for a Boxing Day walk to the falls. Always a good time!

Visited on a beautiful warm day kids had a blast on the playground. Lots of parking and the park looks to be well kept even in the winter months

Victoria Park in Truro is one of Truro's best attributes. If you like walking/hiking in a forest environment, enjoying the playground with pool, having a picnic or watching entertainment at the bandshell, you will enjoy this place.

Be sure to take a walk up to the falls, really beautiful, easy trail walk and depending on the recent rains the falls can be spectacular. A must see if you are spending any time in Truro.

Best of all worlds for a park - green space for picnics, playground for the kids with a splash pad in the summer, hiking trails, river to cool off in. Great views. Magical park.

Found this park while traveling through Truro looking for a place to have a picnic lunch. The park is quite well developed. There are picnic tables, restrooms, and trails that are well marked and maintained. There is parking available in the park although I expect it might get full at times. This is a wonderful spot to take a family... More

100 acres ,three waterfalls ,rivers and streams hundred year-old trees, 2000 stairs and a fantastic setting. The air is so rich you will almost get giddy during your hike. If you don't feel fantastic after a day in the park I'd be surprised . this is the best park In Eastern Canada. Come enjoy Victoria Park.
