Sim's park is the place where kids can enjoy and have fun.It is also a beautiful place to hang out. It's not better than Ooty Botanical Garden but still, you can enjoy a beautiful evening here.

Sims Park is one of the best relaxing places after a very long drive from Ooty. It is a beautiful place with lots of flowers and trees.It is well-maintained with clean and proper seating arrangements.This park is normally not suitable for old people or people having walking problems as the main entrance has many stairs going down to the garden area.

Sim's Park with loads of information about flora which gives good learning experience for kids and adults.Boating and children's play area is available here. It is a nice picnic spot and one can spend time by walking around the park. Not advisable for elders with walking difficulties as the entire park has steps to climb up and down.

It is a worthy place to visit with family.It has kid play area, where kids enjoy more than a botanical garden in Ooty. You can also find 100 years old rare trees and more important every tree has name plates.

Sim's park is a huge park which is well maintained. There are different varieties of trees and flowers. There are a small boat ride and playing area for children. Do plan to spend a couple of hours to enjoy the nature's beauty. Car park fee is Rs 50/- which is little expensive for roadside parking.

Sim's park is one of the renowned tourist spots in Coonoor. It's a big park with play area for children, there is also a small lake for boat facility. There are many local photographers in that park who will take the snaps and print the photos taken and give it to you at the same spot. The primary thing is that No food is available inside the park. So carry your own stuff like snacks, water etc.., Good place to hang out with your dearest one and with family.

It's a must place to visit in Coonoor, the park is divided into Rose Garden, small Lilly pond, flowering plants area and also there are a very small boating area and children park. They have the steep steps so it will be tiring for the elders so be aware of that.Fruit show is a famous festival show which is conducted during the month of May in this garden.There are no shops inside this garden, better you can carry some snacks or food with you.Overall a nice place for relaxing.
