Besides the lively mature trees and open parkland there are particular treats in store for the visitor including an enclosure of monkeys no less!

It was so cold when we visited here and the park had a real English winters feel to it. The monkey enclosure is well set up to view the monkeys who seem well cared for. They are locked up after 4 pm in the winter time. Well worth a visit.

Visited city park to fill in some time before our hotel was ready for check in. Our children (8 & 12) enjoyed chasing winter leaves falling off the trees, had a game of giant chess, then watched the monkeys. I think the monkeys would have kept us busy for 10 minutes only if it wasn't for a little baby monkey... More

Easy walkthrough park, picturesque garden, kids get to see monkeys, ducks. If you walk off the paths (July ) expect to have cold and wet feet. So if you have young kids wear covered shoes.

We attended the Launceston Australia Day Celebration and spent the afternoon being entertained by a Launceston Brass Band in City Park. A great venue close to the City Centre to relax and enjoy the entertainment. There is also a very nice restaurant. The enclosure for the monkeys which has been an attraction in City Park for many years has been... More

City Park is a lovely little English-style city park with neatly mown lawn, mature trees and well-tendered flower beds. A great place to read a book on a sunny day. The monkeys would be loved by kids.

What a great place to go in the city. We were entertained by the monkey enclosure for nearly an hour. The homeless people circulating around us was quite intimidating however.

Great relaxing park for a picnic. Be prepared to spend a few hours here. The monkeys are must see and are very funny. The glass hot house is also a must see and is very interesting. There was a band playing on the band stand when we were there

A bit strange to have exotic animals in the heart of a major city in Tasmania. But you have to admit they are cute and entertaining and they appear to be very well looked after. The park overall is well maintained and laid out. Hobart is not exactly lacking in green space nearby but always good for city dwellers and... More

A great place on the edge of Launceston's CBD to relax for couple of hours. A must visit if you have kids who can be entertained by the monkey's, take a train ride around the park, play in the play ground or generally just have a run around on the excellent lawns. Can also feed them as there is a... More
