This little park provides a fabulous spot to just sit or wander under the glorious trees and garden beds that are beautifully manicured and offered in this city. Wanting time out....a perfect spot for it.

Small enough to amble around, varied enough to stir the senses, pretty enough to deflate the aggro of the day, wonderful trees that shade in summer and bring delights of colour and awareness of changing seasons... Tots are catered for in a nice little playground, and then there is the large open enclosure (hehe) full of monkeys. Got it all,... More

This is my home town and we went back for a reunion so I decided to visit all the attractions that I could remember from when I was a child. The monkeys were still there and the train still runs around the park

This park in central Launceston is a wonderful place to visit and is suitable for all ages as there is something for everyone. A safe and popular children's play area with its own kids size toilets. A conservatory which changes seasonally. Ideal for picnics.

A European style park complete with century old exotic trees laid out with plenty of open space to enjoy. The venue for Festivale in February which lures foodies from interstate. A great place for symphonies under the stars on a balmy summer evening. An extensive playground for preschoolers, safely fenced from traffic and with a little train to tour the... More
