City Park is a Launceston gem. It is everything a public park should be- FREE, clean and accessible to all. The conservatory and monkey enclosure add interest and a reason to stay longer. I was not sure if I would like the monkey enclosure which speaks of a bygone era despite its modern amenity. But like everyone else I was... More

This is a lovely park to just sit in and relax in the sun. The gardens are beautiful and there is a secure kids playground area. I'm not sure about the monkey exhibit, but they seem happy enough...

It was nice to visit and see the monkeys but the only impressive part of this park was the entry gates and houses. Other than that it was another park.

Great little park. Very pleasant to just amble through at leisure. The monkey enclosure is a delight. Reading about the history of the time monkeys have been in the park was also interesting. Children will love it. Close by there is also an exhibition hall of all diffeent crafts. Also worth seeing.
