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.

  • We wandered the beautiful gardens but the highlight was the sheer joy and entertainment of the macaque monkeys with their little infants. So much fun watching them at play - and all for free

  • A beautiful park, manicured perfectly. So clean & green. I enjoyed seeing the cute little monkeys, so entertaining. Worth a visit to just wander around these peaceful gardens.

  • A beautiful and peaceful spot to just sit and relax. Well kept gardens and grounds with monkeys to watch. Take some time out of your day to sit under a shady tree and take in the beauty - just great to sit and watch the world go by!
  • Great Park to sit read and relax in. Or watch the Japanese monkeys. They are very entertaining. There's a Cafe that serves very nice coffee, cake and lunch.
  • Needed to entertain a 5 year old. Very clean and well maintained. Even though the macaques were in bed we still had a good time.
  • Really cool, good for skateboarding met a sik kid and gave him a cashew and then lent him a skateboarding to bomb down a hill. But toilets have weird glass on them and make you feel like other people can see you when you pee.
  • We attended Festivale yesterday in Launceston. An annual festival for the whole family. All things Tassie in the gastronomic & wine, cider dept, a foodies paradise. There were hundreds of stalls. Hilarious street theatre, great bands all day & night. And all in the beautiful City Park under the shade of the enormous trees. Our second time & we had a ball. Looking forward to next year.
