Me and my family went there and I got to climb up Jacobs ladder which is not as easy as it sounds. They have pretty cool waterfalls which is cold to swim in the summer and they have lots of look offs. There is usually a lot of people but not packed all spread out. Everybody should visit

We enjoyed our walk through Victoria Park in Truro, NS. The park is roughly 1000 acres with natural woodlands. There are lots of stairs and many trails that take you to different areas of the park. It can still be enjoyed by people who have trouble climbing stairs by staying on the level trails.

A great place to enjoy nature! Many trails that can be easy or abit more challenging. There are also picnic areas, but get there quickly as it is a popular spot!

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 Ladder" got rid of some of our boys' steam - and mine!

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!

Visited on a beautiful warm day kids had a blast on the playground. Lots of parking and the park looks to be well kept even in the winter months

Victoria Park in Truro is one of Truro's best attributes. If you like walking/hiking in a forest environment, enjoying the playground with pool, having a picnic or watching entertainment at the bandshell, you will enjoy this place.
