In this park there is also a monkey exhibit, which is free! You can spend 5 minutes here or an hour. The monkeys are thoroughly entertaining and definitely... More

A great park for family's with children, especially special with the japaneese monkeys on display. Also a great cafe to pick up a coffee and cake.

We just walked through the park to visit the Japanese Macaque monkeys which were just fascinating to watch. You could spend ages there just watching them. There were so many youngsters there playing and up to all sorts of mischief. A great park for kids .

The park has a playground and lots of open space for picnics and games but our interest was the monkey enclosure. The monkeys were entertaining and with several baby monkeys seem to be content in their surroundings. Worth the visit.

What a way to loose track of time, go and watch these funny animals go about there day. A great fee activity to take the kids too or just visit by yourself. The gardens are also good to have a wander around

Kids watched for at least half an hour the monkeys. There are lots of baby monkeys at the moment and they were very entertaining!

32 years ago on our honeymoon we stumbled onto this park and were very surprised to see Monkeys. Arriving there today it was great to see the new enclosure and lots of playful monkeys having fun. The gardens and grounds are spectacular too.

Go for the monkeys - even in winter they are extremely active. The gardens are great but the monkeys are the draw card. How did they come to be there - my favourite story is they were on their way to Launceston in UK but ended up in Launceston Tasmania!

Upon entering the park, we were greeted by a woman at the door of City Park Radio, on the left. We were amazed with the displays of old radios and record player. She brought us to the recording studio and introduced us to the deejay. Then we went on to see the Japanese monkeys with many mother monkeys with their... More
