After walking around and taking in the sights, a stop at the park provides the right atmosphere for a quick respite from the everyday activities in the city. Be sure to stop even for a while and breathe the fresh air and relax under the trees. Time out, for a change.

This has to be one of the nicest city parks I have come across in Australia. Beautiful lawns, large shady trees, lovely flower gardens, a conservatory/ plant house, some lovely old statues and rotunda, and even an exhibit of monkeys. The monkey enclosure is nicely designed and was an unexpected surprise that our young children loved. There is also a... More

We actually stood here for 1hr watching these playful and happy little beings. They are adorable, especially with the new little babies. Very well prepared and designed area. A must see and its free.

Nice spot to have a wander or relax. Gardens and lawns well maintained. Interesting to watch the Japanese Macaques. Must be at least 20 or so. Enclosure looks well maintained, flowing water, plenty of shade. They looked quite content.

A delightful Park in the centre of Launceston. Beautiful old gates, trees and stunning flower beds. The monkeys were a treat too. A lovely spot to visit and take a picnic if you have time.

We took a walk through City Park after lunch and before checking into our hotel. We were suprised by the presence of the macaques inclosure, but throughly enjoyed watching them going about their monkey business. The park itself is beautiful - so well manicured and landscaped and the flowers are just gorgeous. The little duck ponds are also very sweet.... More

We had been told by friends "You must see the monkeys". Had never heard of the monkeys or that they were such an attraction. Very enjoyable watching their antics, it was a beautiful sunny day so continued to roam the lovely peace & quiet of the park and the Conservatory. Had a coffee at the cafe just behind the monkey...
