The City of Launceston manages over 258 parks, reserves and conservation areas covering 15,580 hectares. This includes 61 play spaces, recreation spaces and an extensive trails network.

Open spaces and recreation facilities, when designed, maintained, and utilised thoughtfully, can become dynamic assets that benefit the health and liveability of a city.

We are updating our Recreation and Open Space Strategy to ensure it continues to serve our community. The Launceston Recreation and Open Space Strategy will guide the future supply, design and management of open space over the coming years.

Dynamic and considered planning will ensure that Launceston continues to be a highly liveable city with fantastic amenities and services.

From parks to recreation, and everything in between.
We want to understand how you use these spaces!
