“not just a park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

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 very well maintained.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

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.

“Beautiful park to spend time in”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014

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!

“Signage lacking”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

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.

“Lots of steps!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

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!
