A fairly large park with some interesting waterfalls but i would probably spend the time getting to other hikes. The ladder was a fun run.

It was great spending time here on a hot afternoon. The shade was so welcome! We had a nice walk and scared ourselves by climbing Jacob's Ladder. A must stop when in Truro.

Having been on the road for a few hours, we enjoyed the opportunity to stretch our legs, climb Jacobs Ladder, put our feet in the water of the waterfall, and refreshed, return to our road trip back home. The scenery is lovely here.

Victoria Park is a great spot for the whole family!!! Biking trails, hiking trails, waterfalls, playground and swimming pool. Bring a picnic, go up Jacob’s Ladder and enjoy the falls!! It truly is a hidden gem in the middle of downtown Truro.
