City Park has a lot to offer from plants a lovely coffee shop, monkeys, usually ducks, a great play ground and a conservatory. Plus old world charm. Always lush and green.

A beautiful park which happens to have a monkey enclosure in the middle! All of the park is well kept and very clean. A lovely place to spend the afternoon.

Right in the middle of the city, this smallish Park is so cool! Not only does it have monkeys but also train rides for the kids. $2.50 per person for the train ride, adults can go on too. There is also a train theme playground!...More
