Spent ages wandering around this beautiful park. We were mesmerised by the monkeys frolicking around in their spacious surroundings. We also lunched at the cafe and found both the food and prices very reasonable.

Part botanical, zoo & park. What a lovely place to walk through after lunch or just to unwind. Great photo opportunities & get close to monkeys near entrance to the park. Must do when in Launceston!!

An average Park but with a great particularity: A free exhibition of Japanese macaques!! They look healthy and happy, and I could see 3 beautiful babies, so it is worth visiting.

The City Park wasn't what I was expecting, part botanical garden, part zoo and part park. It has a little bit of everything in a small area. It's a good place to relax for a little while right next to the main part of town. For more about my trip to Launceston please see - http://gotlost.info/2015/04/24-hours-in-launceston-tasmania/

Nice park for a walk around and the macaques enclosure is a kind of surprise. But it looked cleaner than a lot of zoos. The conservatory is small and unsurprising, but the Albert Hall and associated architecture a delight really.

A three minute walk from our hotel much to our son's delight! Cute baby monkeys who seem unfazed by all the human attention. Wonderful little treasure in Launceston!

What a lovely little park. It was beautiful to walk through it on a rainy morning and even better walking back through it once the rain had cleared in the afternoon. We loved the monkeys. They have a very nice enclosure and look very well kept. They will keep you entertained for ages.

A very unexpected sojourn into City Park. Just the most wonderful troop of groovy Japanese Monkeys, a range of active dudes & a couple of little babies to keep our girls totally intrigued. Well worth a visit if looking for something relaxed.

This park is great, nice easy relaxed atmosphere. Great gardens and grassed areas. The monkeys were a huge surprise, we had no idea they were there. What a great park right in the centre of the city

Beautifully maintained park, plenty of space for an enjoyable stroll, and don't miss watching the Japanese Macaque monkeys in the park.
