Description & Services
Information The Civic Square is a park that Truro residents can call their own. Its design was the result of a public consultation process that gave every community member a chance to shape this beautiful space. 
The Civic Square features a large, flexible open space that makes it perfect for public gatherings. Whether you take advantage of its improved lighting and integrated sound system to host a live music performance, or use one of its many quiet spaces to relax with a good book, the Civic Square has something to offer everyone. In the winter, the Square even hosts an outdoor skating rink! 
The square is available to book for public events (some restrictions may apply) through Truro’s Parks, Recreation, and Culture Department.
