  • Amazing walking trails. Make sure to take the walk to the falls. The old Norway Spruce are beautiful. If you like mountain biking or hiking the reservoir trail is perfect. 
  • This park features a deep ravine through which the creek flows, and a small waterfall. Very scenic place, so close to Truro downtown! You can go on a short or long hike in this large park. "Jacob's La...  more »
  • Victoria Park is a great place for a walk in any season. I took my son and nephew for a Boxing Day walk to the falls. Always a good time!

  • This place is awesome! You should go! If anything at least for the trails to climb the huge Jacobs ladder. Beautiful waterfalls and easy walk. My toddler loved the park and they have co swings so you and baby can swing together
  • Beautiful and extensive park for such a small town. Great place for walking and cycling, or to have a picnic in the grassy area. The park has many waterfalls along the river that can be quite spectacular. Great place for people of all ages and levels of activity.
  • Just gorgeous, with lots and lots of well maintained, walkable trails. Beautiful fails and lots of stairways that take you to various viewpoints. One of the very nicest parks of this type in Nova Scotia, and certainly in Truro. A must-see.
  • 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.
