This is a natural park with such beautiful scenery. It also has a swimming pool, activities at night. The walking trails are awesome. The falls are great . Come see for yourself, you won't regret it.

We went for a hike on our last trip to Truro - you will NOT be disappointed! Just bring your sneakers/water/comfy clothing and enjoy your walk/hike! There are many, many trails which include water falls, wild life, beautiful scenery. You can easily spend an 1hr here without even knowing - I highly recommend Victoria Park!

Victoria Park in Truro is a combination of many things for the community. It is a natural area with walking paths and hiking areas; it is a groomed area of baseball diamonds and fields; it is a swimming pool area; a concert stage area and more. It seems to be a well utilized area in Truro and seems to be... More

This is a lovely, clean, well maintained park with great trails. There are bathroom facilities and picnic tables. We didn't visit, but there were directions to a public pool. Many of the trails are handicap usable and there are plenty of places to stop and rest or to stop and read a book.

We went for a walk in Victoria Park, it is a beautiful well looked after park. There are two waterfalls in the park which do not take too long to walk to. There are paths to follow and steps which can take you up to walk around for different views. Highly recommended!

The pathways were well maintained, and well put together, but directional signage was lacking. The otters were enjoyable to watch, the waterfalls were pleasant, but trying to find those took a turn of faith. Some paths required many steps to get to various levels and some people might not be able to navigate all those steps.

What a beautiful park. So many trails, so many steps. We climbed Jacob's ladder to see the waterfalls. The falls are beautiful. The park is clean, well thought out and there is adequate signage. Jacob's Ladder is a challenge, but just take it at your own pace. The park is absolutely lovely!

Victoria Park is a gem in the middle of Truro. Great walking trails for all abilities. Great place to see wildlife...deer can be seen often. Two waterfalls to photograph. Concerts held there in summer. Pool and playground for kids. Picnic sites for fun days in summer. Open year round with winter hiking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.
