We were going to check these out while on our stay in Truro and found out that they had moved from their previous location. They are now on the NS Agriculture Campus in Bible Hill (a suburb of Truro). They are in a little rock garden just off the Cobequid trail, it is a nice hike around the campus and... More

The berlin wall sections are an excellent addition to the town. Unfortunately they are not well protected, looked after and they are not overly spoken about. Makes it hard to find them, and for those who are not looking for them actively. Definitely not a "stumble upon" attraction.

Amazing that something so historic has come to a little town like Truro. It used to be right in the town centre but with very poor surroundings - untended garden, concrete buildings either side etc... it has now moved to the college where I'm sure it has a more pleasant home, but just the little bit more difficult to get...

Actually I probably drive by these 3 - 4 times a week and now never look at them. I realize their history and signifigance but they just look so out of place. People coming into Truro and driving by must wonder what they are standing there for.

Firstly, there are no plaques stating that these outcroppings of broken wall are the Berlin wall. People dont even believe you when you tell them it is. They sit in an ugly part of town in an unkempt lot and do nothing but attract birds to sit on them and leave droppings. Not sure why Truro needs a section of... More

It was rather awe inspiring to see the real panels from the Berlin wall in person.

It is nice to be able to show my son history in real life. You can see and touch the wall and it brings the thing to life. Nice grassy area around it to sit on in the summer.

The wall sections are downtown on the left side of Prince St., a one-way street. A private citizen placed them on a vacant lot and made it into a little park. It was our first time to see any of the wall, but we later saw another part of it in Maine.
