This park is beautiful and is in the downtown area. It is easy to find and the best that nature has to offer. You could easily spend hours in this park. There are waterfalls, hiking paths, children's playground, swimming pool, even a barbecue Pavillion. Do...More

Easy hiking on well groomed trails with beautiful scenery right in the city. We were there in October when the leaves were changing. Gorgeous. Loved it!

We were there off season, so none of the attractions were open. Beautiful well marked walking trails.

Vague childhood memories brought me back to this park today, and I'll be back again soon. Many steep hills to climb and steep staiways, too, so not necessarily for the weak of heart or out of shape people, but great exercise, lots of gorgeous trails...More

Went for a hike during a visit back home to Nova Scotia. The main waterfall train was closed during the visit so had to use a different trail.

The Victoria Park is a lovely place to walk. It is so pretty and a great way to enjoy the area. We were very impressed with the beauty and there were a lot of people there as well.

We hiked to the falls. Beautiful view. The trail was pretty easy and well marked. Had several opportunities for good photo-ops. We climbed Jacob's Ladder (300+ steps) and were rewarded with breathtaking views.

The main trail into the park is very popular. On it, you will pass Jacobs ladder (180+ wood plank stairs), after the ladder you can cross a bridge over a small river (you’ll see a gazebo with benches inside). Or continue on... More

You can walk to the waterfall and back to the parking lot with a stroller, but to make a circuit you have to do stairs.
