A beautiful park with many heritage trees. Wonderful in autumn when they change into many colours. Also interesting is the monkey enclosure, popular with children and adults. This park also runs a miniature train. The pavilion has beautiful and interesting seasonal displays....well worth a visit. Close to the city, this is great for Launceston.

The monkeys are in the heart of the city's worth a visit Especially if you have kids. Expect to spend 30 minutes just watching them okay if not longer.

We visited the City Park several times during our 4 day stay in Launceston. Both my daughter and I just loved watching the monkeys, they are so mesmerising. The playground was also very popular. It's a great little playground for kids, the train being the highlight for my daughter, followed closely by the toadstool children's toilet. The park is beautifully... More

Spent Sunday afternoon enjoying the morning sun whilst enjoying the tranquility of the park. Even though it is located in the middle of the city, there is a tranquility that allows you to relax. The park has beautiful maintained gardens along with the amazing monkey attraction. It is safe for kids along with great amenities along with clean BBQ's and... More

The park is only fairly small but the area is kept in very good condition. Any time of the year is good to visit and every local really should be glad to have such an area within short walking distance of the city. Who can possibly resist Japanese Macaque (monkeys)? Please take your time and look at the history of... More

What an amazing park! Beautifully kept gardens and lawns that on a sunny day could see you relaxing with a picnic lunch and watching the wildlife. We were also lucky enough to see the monkeys which were great fun, they looked very happy and were very active something you could stand and watch for hours. We also dropped into the... More

This is a really lovely spot for a stroll. Nice parkland, beautiful roses (as Launceston does so well!), a lovely greenhouse type space plus the monkeys. Worth a visit, next to the city.
