City park is a great place for young families as there is a playground and Japanese Macques (monkeys) to visit as well as a train ride on offer. The cafe near Albert Hall offers amazing food with a Turkish influence. I love their wraps for lunch. The gardens are also nice to wander around or relax in. The only down... More

The colours in June were amazing. It was just a really nice relaxing space to be in with different garden areas scattered around. I can imagine it would be a great place for a game of bocce on a sunny day. The monkey enclosure was just a bit too weird for me but i'm just not a fan of animals... More

Spent at least an hour each time we visited just watching the monkeys. They are a great stop by while in town and it is free to view.

Accessible from the CBD I found this park on a stroll late in the afternoon. The sunset bathed the large European trees in an Autumn glow which was very photogenic. With classic Victorian wrought iron architecture I could have been in one of London's great parks. Nicely set out with paved paths and sign boards it was a green and... More

This park always entertains us. Wonderful buildings, monkeys, the Design Centre and a park to walk in. A great cheap activity for the family.

Lovely formally set-out park with beautiful plants to stroll amongst, and the Japanese Macaques (monkeys if you like) to look at !

What a great park, the monkey enclosure was a great surprise and a great source of entertainment. Lovely place for a picnic, walk or just sitting on one of the many seats.

What an awesome thing to see, monkeys in the middle of a park and free of charge! I wish Melbourne has monkeys like this, they are so nice to watch and enjoy and always being interesting. They even had a few babies jumping around which is great to see. The information boards help make sense of what's happening and add... More

A beatiful refuge in autumn. The colour of the shedding leaves and the emerging bareness of the tree branches made my walk through this park magical. Some people see autum as a dull season. I see it as equally beautiful as all others ... just different. This park is worth a visit. It's a thumbs up from me. 👍 👍... More
