Now more than 125 years old, Victoria Park is a 1,000-acre treasure in the heart of Truro. The beautiful and dynamic urban park boasts incredible natural features, including a dramatic steep-sided gorge, a winding river, cascading waterfalls, and a stately old-growth Eastern Hemlock forest. The park offers visitors endless recreational, cultural and leisure opportunities. These include hiking, photography, birdwatching, picnics, family gatherings, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, swimming, baseball, cultural events, live music, tennis, cycling and more. Come to play at the playground, swim in the heated outdoor pool, or challenge yourself with a 175-step climb to the top of Jacob’s Ladder. Spend an hour or spend the day.
