The park has something for everyone. The monkeys are a treat, the children's playground is very good and the toilets are clean. The gardens and the open space are well laid out and well maintained.

Very nice, compact inner city park. There are some lovely big trees and pleasant walking paths within the park. It is a nice spot for some "time out" in Launceston.

The park is centrally located in the City and is beautifully maintained. The lawns, flowers and gardens are gorgeous and there was no rubbish anywhere. The Japanese Macaque monkeys are a delight to behold and their antics will provide much amusement. There were quite a lot of people taking advantage of the park to walk, exercise, watch the monkeys or... More

This City Park is a bit of a surprise. The local know about it but the visitor may not go there. It's only a small place but it has a bit of everything, including monkeys! I visited during the day when school children were everywhere and parents were out with their children walking and playing. It has good sized gardens.... More

Free parking is available around the perimeter of the park. Although it's not a big park by city standards there are several walking areas, eateries, toilets, and a timber design centre on the city side of the park that is well worth a visit. There's also an indoor plant exhibit near the middle of the park. Take a picnic basket... More

Had to see them every day of our stay. They are so entertaining to watch. The younger ones are so cheeky.

If you need a break from the heat and dust of Launceston CBD, then the City Park is the place to go. It is regularly used by families and individuals to relax and unwind. Great children's play area and a train vehicle ride is available around the park. Loads of trees for shade and seating to read or have a... More

Very relaxing walking around, the conservatory was well kept and lovely orchids. The monkey viewing was interesting, go before they all go in for their dinner at 4.30 pm so you don't miss seeing them. The Queen Victoria Children's Fountain is a beautiful piece to see.

oh my god! there are real monkeys in the city park!1 I could not believe my eyes and you do not have to pay a penny to see them either which in itself is a rarity these days. It is a very beautiful park with a little train for the children to ride around on and the most gorgeous flowers,... More
