This park has it all... everything you could want for a wholesome, fun, outdoor family excursion. The waterfalls are fantastic and if the kids don't like THAT, the playground at the entrance will win them over! :)
All the local folk told me that I had to go check out Victoria Park. I was picturing some sort of simple urban park with grass and a few trees, and maybe a gazebo. The reality was surprisingly spectacular. There’s a beautiful waterfall and several...More
I visited Victoria Park multiple times while in Truro and tried a number of the trails. They were all well maintained and scenic. My favourite was the trail to the falls. There were a lot of twists and turns and The scenery was amazing.

The beautiful waterfalls, amazing outlooks and hilly terrain gives Victoria Park a point on the must see and experience free places in Truro. Living here for 2 years it was a place I frequented. As an avid geocacher, many different types are available and are...More
We only planned to make a relatively short stop here during our visit to Truro, but probably spent a good 2-3 hours walking the impressive and well-maintained trail system in this beautiful park.
The trails and intermittent wooden stairways and guard rails are all very...More
This is definitely a hiking park, no way to drive around and see it. We did a fairly short, easy hike to two waterfalls. It was lovely. The path is well maintained. Lots of people out enjoying the afternoon.
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
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 the main route where you’ll come to two sets of waterfalls (upper and lower). Near the back end of the park there’s a loop called “vibert trail” that contains two fairly steep hills that often used for training. Starting at the pool, “hemlock trail” is popular as well.
This all said, you can walk the entire park between 1.5-2 hours.
The whole park is full of well groomed trails, rivers intertwined, and handmade bridges.
All trails are well marked, so don’t worry about navigation.
