Truro, found in central Nova Scotia is located in the south eastern corner of Canada. It has a number of great museums and outdoor activities for students to take part in. One of their more famous parks, Victoria Park, is found in the forests and picturesque surroundings of Truro. The area is a natural draw for cross-country skiers, snowshoers and hikers during winter months. Truro Parks, Recreation and Culture staff groom approximately 20 kilometres of cross-country ski trails for classic and skate skiing.
Victoria Park is also a great place to bring your family for a picnic lunch. The Picnic Pavilion is located in the lower park and is well used (by reservation) for a number of different activities, ranging from family or school reunions, birthday parties, food preparation for special events or as a registration area for events taking place in the park.
