We had a great walk here. The park is big(!) and well maintained. There a couple waterfalls to walk to as well as other trails where you can just bask in the quiet of nature. It really is a wonderful place.

Really nice park in the center of town, you feel like you're out in the forest except for the occasional siren or traffic noise. Well maintained, natural trails!

I'm always impressed with towns that have set aside nice parks that are dog-friendly and Truro has done a nice job on that front.

This is a lovely park, with wide even pathways for walking, or lots of stairs for those looking for something more challenging. We just walked in to see the waterfall, but thoroughly enjoyed the visit.

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.
