Royal Park, Launceston

Royal Park or City Park in Launceston, Tasmania is on the edge of our city.  It contains a monkey park which has not long been redone, must wander down to have a look soon.  The trees, most are very old and deciduous. 


Queen's Jubilee Drinking Fountain (1887/1897) above, below the conservatory and below that is the old caretakers cottage which is now used as a Radio Station called City Park Radio.

  2. The beautiful park is on the edge of the city. That's interesting, as all the best things in my hometown are on the edge of the town, just like my favorite supermarket. for example.

    1. There are a few walking paths there in total a block. Then how big is a block, this park would be a small block in my opinion.

  6. Hay que tener un poco cuidado con los monos. En Gibraltar están acostumbrado a arrebatarles de las manos, los objetos que llevan. Algunos hasta han perdido sus cámaras fotográficos, por un pequeño descuido.

    1. Oh yes I'm told that. Our monkeys in rhe Park are behind heavy glass and locked away at night. They don't roam around, they were a gift from Japan some years ago I believe.

    1. Lovely fresh air walking in the park. We do get a little smog in winter as the city is in a valley..these days there are not as many open fires in housed so that reduces the smog in winter.
