My rented apartment is just in front of this park and we walked to the Saturday market. Park has never amaze me but this one gives me a sense of peace. Have a walk, pack a sandwich and coffee. Breath in the fresh air. There's an enclosure of a handful of monkeys. Kind of weird to find it there.

City Park is regarded amongst the best. It is beautifully maintained, has historic interest and beautiful plants and garden to enjoy. It is also called the ' monkey park' by many because of the enclosure that is home to a number of them. It is a gorgeous place for a picnic and has plenty of space for children to play.... More

Nice big park with lots of areas to sit under the shade. Toilets are clean (compared to other major cities). Not too keen on the monkey enclosure, read on the info plaques that they have Hep B. Lets hope the floods never reach the park and enable them to escape.

I was pleasantly surprised by the happy, active monkeys in the early morning (7.30am). They entertained as they jumped on the ropes, happily ate their food, and rolled onto their backs to soak in the sun. Colourful plants and well kept lawns made the morning stroll through the park delightful!
