Has everything you would expect in a city park and more. Beautiful gardens and old leafy trees with excellent walkways, monkey enclosure and ponds with bird life and fish. Plenty for the kids to keep them entertained and large expansive lawns to enjoy. And just across the road from the Car Museum that is also a must see. You could... More

On a sunny day this was a pleasant place to walk and relax. What really attracted us was the Glasgow, Scotland, made fountain known as the Children's Fountain. It came all the way from McFarlane's Saracen Foundry in Glasgow though apparently took a while to construct as children were raising the funds. It is glorious. Less glorious was the collection...

These monkeys are truly adorable. Well worth a visit to City Park for an hour to stroll around the gardens and see these beautiful animals.

The park is beautiful - it was a very hot day when we were there, and it was nice to be able to sit under real shade trees. Also the large greenhouse area was cool and nice. The monkeys were a bit of fun, and obviously well cared-for in a large controlled area - watching the young ones sunning themselves... More

City park is a real gem. Right in the centre of Launceston and only five minutes walk from the main shopping area the park offers many and varied activities. Train rides for kids; coffee and lunch in the cafe or monkey watching. Why not sit under a shady tree and read a book or watch the world go by? A... More

City Park has been very well planned and beautifully maintained to ensure its history is retained. Every day the many different areas within the park are alive with activities. Families with kids playing football/soccer. Others having picnics; young lovers lying in the sun; mums and dads reading to their kids in the beautiful setting, kids playing on the swings and...

We love going to City Park as so many things to see and do. You have the monkeys, giant chess game, great play ground for the kids and the little train ride.

City Park offers something for everyone. Cute playground for the young kids, beautiful gardens and conservatory for all ages and the monkeys are delightful. You can feed the ducks and have a picnic. Simply a beautiful place.

The gardens are lovely. The monkey enclosure was fantastic could have stayed all day. They had a few mums with tiny babies. The enclosure is open from 8:30 till 4:30 and 4:00 in winter. Great place for a nice walk the park has a few historical features as well

We had some beautiful summer days to fill while staying in Launceston CBD with two little ones. I originally took the kids to the park to find the monkeys (turned out to be very easy to find) but we ended up spending nearly two full days there. The playground is excellent for little kids, the paths are great, the flowers... More
