Wanderlust Journal 6 – Victoria Park

This was my first time at Victoria Park, Truro, Nova Scotia, and let me tell you there are some treasures to be found here! 

Probably the most exciting thing about this park was walking in and knowing there would be waterfalls but not quite knowing what the extent of the waterfalls would be. A random trip suggested by a friend the night before, I didn’t have time to do any research, but knowing there would be waterfalls was good enough for me! 

This is a great park for exercise as the trails are a mix of different terrain. There are a lot of steep hills and a lot of stairs, such as Jacobs Ladder! 

There are two parts to the ladder. When you make it up the first part there is an area to rest and then the next part is just a bit smaller. It’s quite a challenge to make it up the this ladder without taking a break. 

I’ve been working out a ton and lost 15 lbs recently and I was certain my newly built stamina would get me to the top but I definitely had to take a break! But that’s the fun part of the challenge to try again next time! 

During our hike we came across the wishing well. What a cool find! What did I wish for? Well, that’s a secret! 

There’s a ton to see in this huge park. Lots of different trails, a few waterfalls, and different places to sit to take in the amazing views. We spent a few hours here and walked just over 9 klm.
