    Victoria Park is a magical place within an urban area. Lots of signage so you don’t get lost. There are still sections of trails closed due to spring storms but plenty of others to explore. For those that like stairs, there are plenty to climb to get to different vantage points for viewing the waterfalls. I saw a mother and baby deer munching without too much care for people. There is plenty of parking except when there is a large event at the bandstand. A must see for visitors to the area.

    We arrived about 1 1/2 hrs before the "bore." We left and came back about 45 min early. There are several benches along the river, so if you get there early, you can get a seat. Otherwise, bring a folding chair or towel to sit on. The height of the bore we saw was not spectacular, but the way it all happens is so interesting. Another amazing tidal phenomenon about the Fundy Bay.

    Fun friendly crowd, lots of excitement and cheering on your favorite horses and drivers. For a small cost you can also buy a fraction ownership in a horse and participate in the barns which would be amazing!!

    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.

    Enjoyed our time in Truro with a hike at Victoria Park and a stay at Inn on the Prince with a few meals plus music on Saturday night.

    Best part: Black history - 2nd Construction Battalion WW1 from Truro. Men not permitted to fight because of the colour of their skin, however worked and died for the British Empire as construction builders in the war.
    Excellent use of the small space to tell the story of Colchester and Truro

    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.

    I grew up in Stanfields gitch (such a Canadian expression). Every morning, I’d look down and read “Stanfields, Truro, NS, so when we were heading back east, I knew that this was a destination.

    While the deals were terrific (the whole family got union suits for Christmas pajamas, and henley sweater, plus much more), there wasn’t a whole lot about the history of the factory. Some old equipment, and old advertisements, and the chance to stand on the old factory floor, but no actual “tour”.

    So go for the opportunity to get some terrific deals, and understand that there won’t be much learning.

    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.

    This stone English Gothic-style church is very beautiful and is known to be the oldest surviving church building in Colchester County, built in 1881. I drove by it several times as I was maneuvering the downtown one-way streets and traffic, so I didn't get out of the car to take photos (which I normally would because I love old churches). I would have loved to see the interior.

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

    Parking on several sides. It has a paved walkway around small lake. I like to jog a few laps everyday here. Lots of benches and picnic tables, some are covered. Duck, loons and other birds frequent the water.
