Beautiful, clean Park! Lots of hiking trails, many have steep wooden steps to climb. The 2 waterfalls were disappointing, but the park itself, quite nice , great for a hike, picnic. etc.

Don't miss taking a walk in this beautiful park. You can climb the steep stairs to Jacob's Ladder, hike one of the many trails or just leisurely walk to the beautiful waterfalls. Very well maintained by the city of Truro. It's amazing!

I'm so glad we stumbled on Victoria Park during our short time in Truro. So much space, beautiful hikes for all levels of difficulty, and so easy to find! Definitely worth the brief detour.

A huge park with the old trees, many trails and fantastic boardwalk system. There are definitely more stairs than the acclaimed Jacobs ladder, we did most of them and loved every step! Dont bother going to that city dam, nothing really to see there and...More

If you are looking for a great place to visit this is it. Playground for the younger ones and a scenic walk for the more physically inclined and everyone in between

Beautiful park with lots of walking trails!!! Great place for a family picnic or swim at the pool. Great trails for biking or just a quiet rest on the many park benches.

We had some time to kill before heading over to watch the tidal bore so we walked through Victoria Park, including climbing Jacobs Ladder. The park is lovely, with very nice walking paths and a pretty waterfall. We just missed a live concert but there...More

Bring your hiking shoes! We are a family of six, not knowing what to expect. What a beautiful sight! Too cold to swim in the waterfalls but bring your suit because the public pool is huge and the kids loved the slides. Great place to...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.
