Relaxing, well maintained park. Great for families with the monkeys, ducks, playground and train rides. Lots of space and many beautiful flowers and plants to admire.

We took a lovely walk in the park on the first afternoon of our arrival. There was a macabre monkey enclosure, very close to the front gate of the park. They were very entertaining and cute. The park is very well maintained.

this is a lovely park within a block of the centre of the city. There is a good café and the monkeys are great! When we were there, there was a Thomas Train driving around for 'big' and little kids. There is free parking on some perimeters of the park. (This is rare in Launceston)

Went for a stroll through the park just to kill some time before the Boags Brewery Tour. Well kept spacious gardens & lawns with a conservatory in the center. A Thomas the Tank train takes the kids for a ride around the gardens. The monkeys are a delight to view.

Pretty, quite, tranquil. Right in the middle of the city centre. Asian monkeys are a must see even tho they can seem evil lol. The landscaping is to die for, good work council.

Beautiful park in the heart of the city. Lovely grounds, delightful conservatory and large playground for the kids. But the highlight was the Japanese macaque monkeys enclosure. Could watch them all day, especially the babies. What a surprise!

Loved the monkey enclosure and the well maintained shady gardens on a warm summer day. A visit to the Art centre is worthwhile to see the timber furniture.
