“beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

This beautiful park is an oasis in the middle of town, with paths, waterfall, Jacob's ladder, trails, etc. What an asset for the whole county to have!

“Always a lovely walk!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

Love bringing the dogs here on leash and moving about the trails. Stunning when it starts to get warm and on through the summer - makes it hard to stay away! Clear paths and usually people are friendly and accommodating to our crazy dogs if we meet on a path. Have the opportunity to see a variety of wildlife when traveling in the mornings - and ALWAYS seems to be squirrels to drive everyone crazy!!

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

We were camping nearby and had nothing else to do till we left the following day. So we stopped by here and we totally loved it. My family loves hiking and this was so scenic and just beautiful. If I lived here I would come here everyday.

The trails were really nice and we really enjoyed conquering Jacobs Ladder!

“A gem of a park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Victoria Park is situated right in the middle of Truro, Nova Scotia. It comprises two main areas a flat area with plenty of parking and various facilties including tennis courts, picnic tables, baseball field, children's play area and equipment.

The second area is the gem of the park - it is the stream (Lepper Brook) than runs through the park with its two easily accessible waterfalls. The pathways and the many wonderful wooden stairways all kept in immaculate condition. The one truly amazing thing about this park is that is it so well maintained and as it is spread out over 400 acres with several spectacular walks and climbs you have to wonder how they do it.

If you are in the Truro area and enjoy nature and a pleasant but energetic walk through nature this is the place for you.

“A beautiful park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

For runners, perfect trails from the reservoir down to the parking lot. For families, ideal place for a nice Sunday walk. All year round you can enjoy it.
