A lovely oasis in the heart of the city. Lots of colour and well kept grounds. A great spot to stop and rest, and eat a takeaway lunch.

Love to relax here whilst the kids run or ride. The monkeys are always a hit. Always something on on the weekends and whether warm or cold it's a great safe family park on sunny days.

City Park is an absolute jewel. Just a few minutes walk from the cbd. The Japanese Macaque exhibit will keep you amused watching these cute monkeys at play.

Definitely worth a stroll through this gorgeous park, especially with all the springtime flora in full bloom. The Japanese Macaque enclosure looked well-maintained with happy animals. So special to see the Macaque babies playing or snuggled up breastfeeding. Nice little playground for younger kids too. And it's all free!

The park is home to a monkey enclosure which everyone loves! The monkeys are so much fun to watch! A restaurant nearby is great for families as it's safe for kids... More

There is a conservatory, rotunda, children's playground, bbq area and Macaque Monkey enclosure. The monkeys are delightful to watch when they are active but check dates, the enclosure is not...

City Park is a great place to visit - see the monkeys (Japanese Macaque actually but let's not get too technical), visit the conservatory, relax on the grass, send the kids off to the playground - just a short 10 minute stroll from the center of the city! A visit to City Park Radio is also suggested - located at... More
