“Beautiful park with a cute cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

The Park is not large, is located in the heart of downtown and is great for a relaxing walk. The monkey exhibit is fun. I enjoyed a few lunches at the small café in the park, where the food is fresh and good. I was fortunate to see the Tasmanian Orchestra play live in the park on one perfect evening. Most of the local residents appeared to be in attendance.

“Great way to spend 1/2 a day.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

The kids love this place. The monkey are captivating to wtach and so cheeky. Its a credit to whoever runs the park on its condition. The hydrangeas were in full bloom and such a relaxing place to spend 1/2 a day.

“Beautiful park with amazing Monkey enclosure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

We spent about an hour here but could've stayed longer just to look at the Monkeys! Travelling with a 2.5 & 6 year old - they were mesmerised by the Monkeys - as were the adults!! Loved this place & it's free. Will definitely return if in Launceston again.

“Beautiful, old fashioned formal city park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

Launceston is full of surprises, like its charming squares and its many lovely parks and gardens. City Park is - as the name aptly suggests - right in the middle of the city (well, just next to the main shopping area). It has a formal layout and is a wonderful place for a restful stroll. It compares well to the beautiful grand gardens of much larger cities like Melbourne and Adelaide.

“PLAY PARK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

We called into this park as we had been on the road for a while.The children had great fun in the playground .They also had a childs toilet in the shape of a mushroom which all our children then used.'For the older members of our group their was a radio museum plus a live broadcasting studio. The monkeys were great.There was also a tea room but we did not have time to visit.Something for all age groups here.Park is not large but has lots of things to see and do.
