This city centre park is a peaceful retreat from the traffic and provides walkways connecting principal streets away from busy traffic. There is currently a wonderful show of dahlias in all colours and sizes. The Japanese Macaques provide an entertaining few minutes, observing their play and social interactions. What a pity the cafe closes at 3pm, just when weary tourists... More

We were lucky enough to visit on a weekend when everything seems to be on at the park. We caught the little motorised train around the park for $2 per person. It was a lengthy ride that our 3 yr old enjoyed. After the ride he was invited to sit in the drivers seat and ring the bell! The giant... More

Born in Tasmania and lived in Launceston for many years. Visiting the City Park was like going back in time. The beautiful gardens and trees, the conservatory where i had wedding photos taken, the monkey in their upgraded habitat, the lawns where my kids played as young children, the ducks we fed with bread. Great to visit it all again... More

Yes that's right I said monkeys. The actually have monkeys in a huge out door cage, you can't feed them but they are cute and again, something you don't expect to see in an out door park open to the public.

Nice park and well looked after, very peaceful and tranquil as plenty of space to sit and relax. I enjoyed seeing the monkeys. Worth a visit if in the area.

We (me and dad) had a pleasant stroll after dinner in Launceston. The City Park has a monkey park and a warm house (both closed when we were there). Anyway, good to visit when you are in Launceston.

Beautiful parklands in the heart of Launceston. Grab a snack from the deli across the road (yummy pies) and sit in the park and enjoy the tranquillity and a peaceful moment. Lovely ponds to sit beside and enjoy some company with the local Launceston ducks. Fabulous monkey enclosure. Kids and adults love this.

I'm not going to say a lot because its just a park, nice enough but nothing spectacular. Gram a bite from a local shop and go sit in the park for lunch. In reality you can do this in any city and there are better places to do this in Launceston. Not sure about the caged monkeys, don't believe they... More

This is a beautiful city park, perfect for stroll because the flower beds ar gorgeous and there is a jewel of a conservatory that was filled with stunning hydrangeas when we visited. Outside there is a display/zoo/open-to-the-sky cage for Japanese macaque monkeys that aare a lot of fun to watch: mother petting her baby, another pari grooming each other, an... More
