Enjoyed our hour here, the monkeys do not look uncared for or with any disease, they look very healthy and a sign explained that they may have looked poor due to moulting of their coats! We loved the ducks and ducklings and the gardens. Very well kept, easy access for all ages.

Lovely, well maintained gardens, good for a short stroll and a relax in the sun. Cute little train for kids to enjoy.

The monkeys were so cute. I spent hours watching them. There is so much free stuff to do in Launceston. Next time i am going back with a picnic.

I visited this park on the weekend and found it quite distressing. Many of the monkeys had hardly any fur and scabs over their bodies. They looked bored and uncared for. There was obviously some type of skin disease spreading through the group. My friend and I had to walk away, it was too distressing to watch these poor monkeys... More

A trip to Launceston is not complete without a walk in City Park. It has so many beautiful trees and such a peaceful atmosphere. I love it no matter the season or the time of day.

A very beautiful park, but LCC (Launceston City Council) could take advantage of the people who use and visit the park in the warmer months. Have some mobile food and drink vans spaced around the park, but make the vans price accessible to all not have $5.00 cups of coffees or $10.00 sandwich's, have the food vans spaced around with...

City Park is a lovely place in the middle of town to relax and get away from everything. Very pretty, well tended gardens, highlight being the monkeys in their very spacious enclosure.

A small, quiet and well kept park that as well as a children's train and plant conservatory, I was surprised to find it contained a monkey enclosure (no, really!) Pretty random, even for Tasmania - as much as I'm against zoos and similar establishments, the 'monkey house' did seem to be very well maintained, with lots of areas for them... More

City park is my favourite . The gardens are well maintained and the greenhouse is lovely especially the orchids. The grass is beautiful and green and on a hot afternoon fell exhausted from all the walking we had been doing and had a snooze beneath a large shady tree, just heaven. For history buffs there is a unique sight in... More

Managed to drop in here on our way out of town to the airport. As our last stop on our Tasmania visit, it was an enjoyable visit. We took the time to appreciate the behaviours of the monkeys and were inspired by the conservatory. Well worth it as a place to relax and breathe in some fresh air for a... More
