What a lovely surprise to find a monkey exhibit in the park. There is also a coffee shop and a conservatory. The park is next door to the Launceston Design Centre. A nice escape from the city.

There really are monkeys in the park, though they are not roaming freely. It's unusual and since the location is right in the city center, worth a visit.

this is a good place for an afternoon walk. There is a small bandstand and a botanic garden tucked away in one corner. It is surrounded by nice homes and very picturesque.

This was the highlight of teenage children's trip to Launceston. I could have left them watching the entertaining monkeys all day. What a great park for children of all ages....and it's free.

Look at the monkeys, the children can play on the equipment and you can have a picnic/barbecue and spend time with your family.

We enjoyed a stroll through City Park, lovely area, with something for everyone. There was a playground area as well as a little train circuit for the little ones. Older children really enjoyed watching the monkeys and their antics. An enjoyable morning outing
