Description
Once a large community of Acadian farmers, Truro was later settled by the Scottish and English. Their descendants operate extensive dairy farms in the vicinity. The Nova Scotia Agricultural College, across the Salmon River at Bible Hill, opened in 1905.
Bible Hill also is the site of harness racing on Sundays year-round at Nova Scotia Provincial Exhibition Raceway; phone (902) 893-8075.
Note: Policies concerning admittance of children to pari-mutuel betting facilities vary. Phone for information.
Victoria Park, 400 hectares (1,000 acres) of woodlands interspersed with numerous springs and two waterfalls, has hiking trails, picnic facilities, a swimming pool, tennis courts and other recreational facilities.
The tidal bore is a natural phenomenon of the Salmon River's changing flow. Unlike typical tides that advance gradually, here the water rushes into the river in strong currents or even waves. A viewing area is just off Hwy. 102 exit 14 at the end of Tidal Bore Road. A timetable for the bore is available from the chamber of commerce.
