Victoria Park is a local gem. Many people enjoy the walking trails and waterfalls every day. You can bring your doggy on a leash. There are challenging stairs to climb. They are a great work out. The trees are old and majestic. The place gives you the feeling that time is standing still. We are very lucky to have this... More

Victoria Park is very tranquil and inviting. Many Truro and surrounding residents treasure this beautiful park and love to share it with visitors to the area. You will find a swimming pool, tennis courts, children's play ground, benches, picnic tables, shelters, band shelter and many walking trails. This park is very historical. Dogs are very much welcomed as long as... More

I have visited Victoria Park more times than I can count, and I still have not explored every corner. It is a beautiful belt of awesomeness nestled in a cute community.

A beautiful park, extremely well maintained and litter free. Two beautiful waterfalls. Unending trails through well-managed forest. A gem year round. Groomed in winter for those who like to cross country ski/skate. Wonderful snow shoe trails throughout. Beautiful scenery, especially in the watershed area in the fall. Lower end of park has nice, playground, and outdoor pool.

A beautiful park to walk, bike, snowshoe, run in, right in the heart of the town. New signage is improving the look of this gem.
