#Nature / Park, #Must See
City Park is a heritage park containing the city's botanic gardens, radio museum, gallery of wood design and furniture, and an enclosed colony of macaque monkeys. The park's monorail operates on most days and is a popular tourist attraction, taking visitors around the area's most notable landmarks. The most prominent buildings at this location are Albert Hall, which was built in 1891; a convention center; and the studios of City Park Radio. The studios are located inside a cottage that once served as the park caretakers' home, and still boast one of the oldest wisteria wines in Australia, planted in 1837.

  • Beautiful park in the city center, includes a couple of pagodas, a conservatory, duck pond, and even a display of Japanese monkeys (note: monkeys can be viewed till 4pm, so plan your visit accurately). Perfect for a stroll in tranquility or a picnic. The only downside is that the road is nearby, so you'll still hear cars driving by. Just beside the park is the national automobile museum, which is also worth a visit if you have kids.
  • Would definitely recommend visiting here. Beautiful park. Play equipment for children here. You definitely need to see the Japanese monkeys here. Also the plant conservatorium was absolutely stunning. You must stop here if you are in Launceston
  • Lovely park, kids loved the ample space to run. Great playground, conservatory and the monkeys were great to see and watch. There was a number of activities to do including a giant chess board. A beautiful spot for lunch.
  • City Park has an appeal all of its own...I especially like the fountain,,the shady trees and garden beds.A very nice place to relax .It holds very good memories for me.
  • Pretty little park with a macaque enclosure, some ponds, a giant chess board and alot of plants and greenery to see. Well worth the visit.
