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! :)

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.

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.
