    Just as big and clean as I remember it from the 70's. Could not walk up Jacobs Ladder but the Duchess did. Friendly people in a beautiful park in a friendly town...

    Make sure to check the times for when the tide is coming in.(on a full moon is good, too) There are chairs but bring one, just in case and your camera. They have a lovely visitor center now with helpful info and a playground for the children and adults with young hearts. I personally love watching the tide come in, air is different, lots of birds, a wonderful phenomenon in our backyard. We most always bring a hot tea or coffee as a time to sit, conversate and reflect on God's Beauty.

    Things my Mother Taught me. This was an excellent play and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We were fortunate enough to have front row seats and it almost felt like we were on stage with them. The play was funny with lots of hysterical moments.
    Stongly recommend any play produced by Hubtown theater.

    Great place to find casuals and undergarments. Discount bins with factory seconds that have no noticeable defects. Obviously Stanfields cares about their quality control. You can find unique clothing lines here. Between this place and their Ingliss St. location, they have all your clothing needs covered.

    I visited the library for my first time with my little girl, I was very impressed and she was thrilled to be there! It is great to be able to go and do research and read all style! My little girl loved all that there was to do there and especially the electronics of course. However I need to keep a balance, some book reading and some electronics.🤓
    Staff was also very friendly and helpful.

    We happened upon this community engagement session with Nevin Jackson by accident. It was an interactive discussion with many local descendants of this World War 1 group of black men who entered the Canadian Military and the hardships they faced from their own countrymen. The 106 Battalion was also touched on. We got to tour the Historeum later and saw many of the topographical maps that were used to plot out the lands in the area.

    This lovely little schoolhouse feel like it is just waiting for a new group of pupils to arrive any minute. There were too very knowledgeable staff members to explain all the items (not so necessary for the 4 seniors in this party. Two of us are retired teachers and the loved all the artifacts that allowed them to reminisce about how it was when they started out in their careers 50 years ago. Well worth the visit.

    I have a senior membership since it opened and really use it at least 5 times a week except in the summer when I am a beach bum. I love the walking track and also the pool and gym.I must say the pool is my place I go the most as it is great work out and easy on the joints ! It is my happy place! I usually go between 7 and 7.30 a.m. and arrive home by 9 a.m. I have made lots of new friends here and have lots of old friends that go here too so it is a social place for us retired seniors . The walking track is great too in inclement weather as I prefer the fresh air but with the rink below at times there is lot activity there too also the view of the surrounding area is great to take in during your walk .Lots of people young and old meet here too especially the young mothers come with their babies in strollers.Their is also a child minding services available at this facility too for parents that want to exercise or socialize! I have recently made a move to a retired facility closer to this center and maybe they will see me every day .It really has become part of my life I was stopped the other day by my late husbands doctor who inquired why he hadn't seen me lately at the walking track people do take an interest in your well being!The staff at the desk is always pleasant and very helpful even if it is a complaint! I haven't tried the café yet maybe someday soon I will . Thanks for the opportunity for me to tell everyone about the RAth Eastlink center MY HAPPY PLACE! Hope it operates forever! it is a great addition to our town.!

    Only a small park and walk around a little pond in the heart of Truro. Great for dogs as they supply poop bags which keeps the park relitively clean. They stock the pond for children with trout which is a popular weekend for kids learning to fish.

    Honestly I was not impressed by anything in town, its not especially quint and offers little in the way of interest for the tourist. You can get some good meals here and there are of course plenty of B & B's to stay at, but this is only a stop over town at best. There was a decidedly "down on its heels" look about the center that did not inspire confidence in this traveller. One of the lest interesting (Truro in general-not Town Hall) places to visit in N.S. IMHO

    I've dropped in a time or two and always found something that took my fancy. Some really unique pieces are often showcased.
