Victoria Park

Victoria Park is now open for individual activities. You will notice new temporary one-way signs on a few loops within the park; many trails are only wide enough for you to travel single file, so be ready to step off the trail to let others pass by with plenty of space. When participating in any outdoor activity, take precautions to protect yourself and the people around you. You must practise social distancing during all activities. That means staying 2 metres (6 feet) away from people you don’t live with.

Victoria Park is one of Truro's greatest assets - a natural woodland park of roughly 3,000 acres in the centre of our Town with an extensive trail system for all ages. Click the icon below to explore Victoria Park and connect to our apps, maps, stories and open data.
