This park has lots of parking, playground equipment, pools swings, falls, and lovely walking trails, also a Jacobs ladder. Truro is lucky to have such a beautiful asset, right in the heart of town. It's a must see, and you can picnic too, on the tables provided.

The trails are beautiful and the falls are cute. I was expecting a bigger waterfall..but I was not disappointed in the smaller ones that they... More

This park is beautiful. If you love waterfalls it is the place to relax and enjoy. Take a picnic lunch and enjoy the outdoors. Go for a hike. Let the kids play at the playground. Perfect family trip

Actually visited back in August 1996. But still one of the most amazing trails I've ever been on. We are planning a family trip and this will be on it

If you go in the early evening you are likely to spot some deer as the park is full of them. Most are fearful of humans, but they don't spook too easily.
