Victoria Park

A Popular Multi-Use Park At Nearby Truro, Nova Scotia

Open all year around Victoria Park is about a 20 minute drive from our location. The easy-walking, hiking and picnic park is a great day trip with over 1000 acres of lush forest, winding stairways and boardwalks, waterfalls and groomed trails to explore. Unlike many hiking parks in Nova Scotia, Victoria is a multi-use park, where bikers, hikers, runners and walkers share the same wide paths that stretch from end of the facility to the other.

The park is well maintained and a popular family destination. Children will love the wildlife, including native red squirrels (that are quite tame), other mammals and the numerous species of birds that visit or nest in the park (including flickers and woodpeckers).

One of the most popular destinations at Victoria Park is Jacob’s Ladder where visitors assend a series of 175 wooden stairs up the Leather Brook Gorge. In late spring and early summer, when the water levels are at their highest, the two sets of waterfalls at the park are spectacular. Well maintained boardwalks make both the Waddell and Howe Waterfalls easily accessible and provide an exciting backdrop for photos of family and friends.

Victoria Park was established in 1887 and was named after the reigning monarach at the time, Queen Victoria. The park is owned and maintained by the Town of Truro. To hike Victoria Park, including the climbing of Jacob’s Ladder, will take about an hour and a half.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

Covid-19 Virus Notice to all Guests Coming to the TBRR (last update: March 23, 2020)

As the world works together to eradicate Covid-19 we wanted to share with
everyone what we are doing here on site to help flatten the curve.

1. Contactless check in and check out - when you arrive you will find your name on the main lodge door, your unit cleaned, disinfected, warmed, and your key inside.

2. After the normal cleaning and linen changes are complete, we are disinfecting with virus killing solutions the "touchable" parts of the cottage (kitchen / bathroom surfaces, light switches, door knobs, remotes)

3. TBRR cottages are an average of 30m apart and this helps with the social distancing  that health authorities advocate.

4. We are rotating cottage availability and are allowing 24 hours of vacancy after guest departure.

5. Occupancy cannot be greater than 5 people in any cottage or chalet.

In conclusion we feel that our big outdoor property, building spacing, and the changes above provides advantages to guests during this Pandemic. If you have any questions, please call Steve or Licia at 902 237 7380 or 902 832 2997.
