Could watch the monkeys for ages. A great place to stroll and enjoy the gardens. A coffee while the little one enjoyed the playground would have been good but didn't see anywhere close for takeaway.

This park is so peaceful and tranquil we visited it every day on our holiday.. My fiance even proposed to me by the water feature which will now always hold a place in our hearts. A must see in Launceston.

Just a short stroll from the center of Launceston shopping precinct is the beautiful City Park. A beautiful park to escape to for some peace and beauty. The Japanese macaque monkey's are a delight to watch as they play and entertain and the beautiful garden beds are magnificent. The conservatory is also very lovely to view.

Launceston's City Park is an amazing public space. There's an large enclosure for the Japanese Macaque monkeys (a gift from Launceston's sister city Ikeda, Japan), a pond with ducks and goldfish, lots of open green space, the John Hart Conservatory (with its seasonal flower displays), and a playground for the children. City Park is also home to the City Park... More

A quiet corner of the city. The Japanese Manque monkeys a highlight. The conservatory was nice, although I think they had nicer flowers when we visited there a few years back.

Every City needs some greenage. Come February, this brilliant city park comes alive with Tassie's best food and wine event - 'Festivale'. While Hobart has the 'Taste' fesitval over New Years, nothing can beat the atmoshere created by this beautiful, natural setting and a truckload of food and wine vendors! Easy access all year round - the park is at... More

Great place on a nice days to take the kid,s or just to take some time out on your own, lovely to do the walk around, play ground for the kids to let loose, it still has the train rides around the park as the did when I was a child, & the ducks & fish are a real treat... More

One of my favourite spots in Lonnie. Some magnificent mature European trees, conservatory with in season flower displays eg orchids, and of course the monkeys ! Close to the Design centre and Motor Museum. Also used for special events such as Festivale, and Carols by Candlelight.

Love going to the centrally located park whenever we go to Launceston. I could spend hours watching the monkeys in their enclosure which for me is the main reason I go to the park.

City Park isn't a huge park by any standards but it's a nice place for a stroll while visiting the city. The Monkeys are always a surprise for people that haven't visited Launceston before. There are some wonderful trees in the Park, lovely lawns to lounge around on during a warm summers day and the conservatory is worth a look... More
