City Park has lovely manicured gardens but its best feature is the wonderful mature trees that provide shade in warm sunny weather, the passing of the seasons and atmosphere when the park us used as an entertainment venue such as Festivale. It is very child friendly for families and I always feel safe when I walk through on the way... More

This is a hidden beauty on central Launceston, the ornamental structures are beautiful, the gardens are always manicured like a golf course, the monkey enclosure always entertaining, the playground even has a dedicated children's toilet and reminds me of old London Town. Numerous spots to sit back and soak up the winter sun, central to everything and a generous variety... More

This Park is in the lovely City of Launceston and is one of the most pleasant, well cared for parks in the area. One of the features is the Japanese Macaque monkey enclosure. The park has some beautiful mature trees, an ever-changing display of flowers and is also the centre for the local Festivale each year. It is one of... More

Really nice park to stroll through especially as there's currently lots of blossoms and blooms. I wasn't overly sold on the monkey enclosure as I just found it a bit ODD, however there were people watching them every time I passed through so maybe that's just me! 😜

We love the free monkey exhibit and the ducks swimming in the ponds. Some tikes we take bread to feed the ducks. There are beautiful lawns to sit and play on. There are free BBQs or we often take a picnic. Our kids love the rotunda and conservatory. On weekends and holidays there is a Thomas the Tank train ride... More

Very pretty park for a quick walk around. Watching the monkeys was pretty cool even if it does come with a side of guilt that comes with watching all captive animals. Pretty flowers, sculpture & the prettiest little house nearby I've ever seen.

Another one of the city's many attractions with something to suit all age groups. Set in a great location in the middle of the city yet so tranquil and peaceful, adorned with lovely trees and gardens, the perfect place for a stroll all year around. There is the flower conservatory, ducks and other bird life, a kids playground, train rides... More

Had a great morning out with Mr 3 checking out the monkey house, playing on the train playground and dancing in the pagodas. We really enjoyed the hot chocolate on the cafe too!

Honestly a great place to enjoy a gorgeous park inclusive of monkeys (perhaps they were baboons) and all the trappings of colonial parkscape. Worth a relaxing stroll to see the monkeys and the grounds.
