Waterfalls, reservoir loop trail, outdoor swimming pool, Jacob's Ladder stairs

Victoria Park is a 1000-acre (4 square kilometres) green space in Truro, Nova Scotia, which features a brook (Lepper Brook), two waterfalls (Waddell Falls and Joseph Howe Falls), and a huge system of pathways for walking, running or cycling (you can also cross country ski or snowshoe in the winter months). There’s an outdoor pool and bandstand for the summer, picnic areas, a playground and tennis courts. The pathways wind through the heavily forested area and Truro’s reservoir, and there are several interesting locations to stop at, including a wishing well, Jacob’s Ladder (an incredibly steep set of stairs – 175 steps to be exact), cute boardwalks leading to gazebos and little wooden shelters, and a lookout point. I’ve spent quite a few Saturdays exploring the area, and I absolutely adore it. If you ever happen to be passing through Truro, you wouldn’t be disappointed by a stop at Victoria Park!

Victoria Park

Nice place for picnic and small break from driving. The waterfalls are super small and quite impressive wood pathways.
