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

Good for a couple hours of entertainment in Truro. There is a variety of hikes for everyone. The waterfalls are a must see.

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.

Victoria park is truly a magical place. Every time we come here there is something new to discover. Our girls love the playground and my husband and I love the trails. This is the most amazing place to take photos year-round and you can spend hours and hours exploring all the different trails.

I wanted to stay at the hotel to work, but decided to join the walk in Victoria Park. It was really nice walk, the nature is beautiful, the air is fresh. After 1,5h I was back in my hotel and worked even better. Thanks to Jim for showing us around and sharing his music on harmonica. You're the star of... More

Victoria Park has wonderful trails to walk on through the park. The park itself is very nice to see. There are streams in the park and lots of steps if you like climbing.

Victoria Park has something for everyone. There are several trails and some are even wheelchair accessible. There is a great playground for the young ones and a canteen for snacks. Pack a lunch and you can eat it and even BBQ it along the trail. You will need to bring charcoal etc. There are picnic tables. Get out and enjoy... More
