Monkeys = amazing. Kept our son entertained for well over 30 minutes with their antics. The playground on the other side of the park is well fenced from the road and again, let our son burn energy off for well over an hour. Unfortunately at the time we were there the conservatory was closed. A little train runs through the... More

There is a playground for the youngsters with swings, slides, onsite train to clamber over and with seats nearby for parents and grandparents. The monkey enclosure and the duck pond will keep young and old entertained. The park itself is a garden lover's delight with the... More

What a novelty?! Monkeys in a park? They look so happy and cute! Further afield from the monkeys the lovely open spaces and grassy areas, great place for a picnic!

The place has a significance in Launceston. 100 years ago, monkeys were donated by Japan and you can see them free in the park. Also are beatiful Gardens and a place you can take your family.

It was wonderful to actually have something else rather than just a basic park. The monkeys were adorable and the conservatory was beautiful.
