  • Lovely walking park. With nature and flowers. Well occupied area with many different uses. Nice for family or exercise. 
  • Should be on all itineraries whilst visiting Truro. Take your time and enjoy the serenity of the park 
  • My husband and I walk in Victoria Park every day. We go up to the falls and back one of the trails. Our favorite is the one that goes from Waddell Falls around the upper level back to the Holy Well. All of the many trails in Victoria Park are beautiful. We are impressed daily with the friendly and dedicated team who maintain the park. We have even seen them doing little things like dusting off the benches! Walking in Victoria Park is the best part of our day. We appreciate so much having this available to the public for free!!
  • Truro's own hidden gem. It is very misleading when looking at it from the parking lot. From open fields and play areas with a splash pad. You can go for hours walking through nature along its trails. A few waterfalls and many trails with varying difficulty. A local favorite beong jacob's ladder (a long staircase going up a large steep hill). A must see.
  • The park has a playground and pool. There are restrooms in close proximity to this locations. Activities within the community will take place frequently at the park especially during the summer. There are hiking trails that are well marked and go from easy to moderate. The park is great for families of all ages and is a must visit if in the area.
  • A beautiful park. Lots of easy paths for walking, or elevated paths accessible by stairways. This is a must stop if you visit Truro.
  • Definitely one of my favourite places, especially in town. So many different paths to go on with hidden trails, and beautiful scenery such as the two waterfalls in the center of the park. Great at any time of year just mind your step on all the various staircases throughout the park.
