Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Just a relaxing place to visit. Nice to walk around whilst on a lunchbreak and take time out from a busy schedule. Thanks to Launceston City Council and workers.

What a great park - all free of charge you can visit the macaques in their spacious rocky domain, see a well tended and colourful plant conservatory, have a ride on a ditto train (nominal fee) and sit on a single wooden bench that seems to stretch the whole length of the park! Dogs are not allowed so the wildlife is left in peace and the whole place is spotless and so relaxing. Not to mention the whole bank of toilets! Well done Launceston - you are an inspiration and great example to the world!

Visited this park with my preschooler. We didn't see the monkeys (visited outside of the wildlife encounter time). The park seemed to be very well maintained. We liked the fountain and overall had an enjoyable visit.

Beautiful gardens with a conservatory full of pretty flowers. The monkeys were my highlight! It was amazing to stand and watch them playing together. Lovely to see a children’s playground and a life size chess game. Toilets available in the park. Ample parking on the surrounding streets. Very well maintained gardens. A peaceful spot to walk, sit, relax, read or even picnic.

A Very pretty park. Well maintained. Had a monkey enclosure. Some public toilets don’t have a seat, but were very clean. Giant chess game and beautiful gazebos around the park.

The colony of Japanese monkeys, the feature of the City Park were a gift from Launceston's sister city, Ikeda in Japan in exchange for 10 wallabies back in 1980 and you might wonder who got the better deal. The park is typical and pleasant and the monkeys an interesting attraction and a reminder of what we may have once been.

Great park to sit in the sun or stroll around. Monkeys are there, big open spaces for the kids to play, lots of gardens and trees.
Downside is a lack of picnic tablets and the duck pond water looks horribly dirty.

Such a spacious beautiful park in the middle of the city. Lots of huge trees. Lots of seats, lots of lawn for kids to run around and ride bikes, really good paths, lots of space which was well-utilised by different groups and families. Monkey enclosure in the corner which was spacious and clean with mischievous monkeys playing chasies. Next door is the Design Centre which is worth a look too.
