“A pleasant walk in the park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

It is rather nice that a small city like Launceston can have a pleasant little place like the city park available so close to the city centre. The park is a wonderful refuge for the travel weary.

“A beautiful, tranquil space with lots to offer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Definitely worth a visit if you only have a day or two in Launceston, and you can go for 10 mins or two hours.
Japanese Macaques are very easy to watch (especially with kids).
There are lots of very smooth paths for scooters and bikes, a great little playground, and acres of lush lawns with magnificent old trees.
A small rotunda in the middle hosts all sorts of things, from free bands on Sundays in summer, to a practice space for some pretty talented street dancers.
Great place for takeaway/picnic lunch, a short stroll, or a ride on the mini train :)

“Marlin_hairandmakeup”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

City Park is filled with meandering pathways lined with big shady trees, ducklings in the pond,a conservatorium boasting all the colours of nature, and just when you think you've seen it all... a large glass enclosure of monkeys. If there was seating around the area then people would never leave. It's pure delight watching these amazing creatures play and nurture one another. A true highlight to a day in Launceston.
