Been there many times and have always found it to be an oasis in the desert. Suggest a jaunt up Jacobs Ladder for fun but do stop for a break and fantastic view. whether your there for a swim in the summer, or play at the swings Victoria Park has at all.

Spent an hour walking around this park on a trip between Charlotte Town and Halifax. Had read on here how nice it was so hunted it down. It's sign posted from the main road which is handy.

You don't want to visit Truro without a hike at Victoria Park. We always bring our company from out of town to the park. Beautiful anytime of year

This is a beautiful place, very peaceful and lots of hiking trails. This is a good place to spend a morning hiking, reading and drinking coffee

This such a pretty place to visit. The walking trail is so great to visit because you see so many different birds, small animals such as squirrels, and other little animals. The brook is very beautiful. If you want a great experience try the Jacobs ladder. Its a real good workout.

Spent a lovely hour or so meandering around in this beautiful park. Very peaceful and soul reviving. I enjoyed it a great deal. Wish I had better knees as I would be going up all those stairs to have a different experience of the park.

Great to see so many families enjoying the park. Pets on leash and owners being responsible. Grass is cut neat no garbage laying around and playground equipment looked to be in good shape and repair. We walked to the Falls and it was beautiful.

Several people had alerted us to The joys of Victoria Park. We spent a pleasant hour or so walking the trails and were glad to see that even in the evening it was being used for a variety of leisure activities. Well worth a visit.

Thank Greyfoodie
