Victoria Park is one of Truro's greatest assets - a natural woodland park of roughly 1,000 acres in the center of town. The park is home to walking/cycling trails, waterfalls, a bandshell, playground and splashpad, swimming pool, canteen and more!
Downtown Truro is where you get a true sense of Truro’s history, culture and community pride. It’s where you’ll find unique shopping and dining experiences that are enhanced by warm, east coast hospitality and top notch service. Downtown Truro offers the best of both worlds – small town ambiance combined with a full range of shops, services and recreational opportunities. Downtown offers a unique mix of local businesses – shops, restaurants, cafés and professional services – owned by the people who call Truro home. With museums, art galleries, a premiere cultural centre, a state of the art new library and civic square, as well as being steps away from the beautiful Victoria Park, it is clear that Downtown Truro appeals to residents and visitors alike.
