“Enjoy Sim's Park”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Another wonderful park alike the Botanical Garden and a must visit for everyone. The park is on an inclined area consisting of a rectangular lush green park, children’s playing area and a pond at the base. The park also has many years’ old trees, herbs, shrubs, flowers, water body, glass house, creepers and many other varieties of plants. We also spotted a Rudraksha (Beads) tree. The pond had plenty of small and large fishes drawing much attention of children of all age and size. At the base of the incline by the park side, there is a message carved out by the alphabetical sizing of the shrubs – “Enjoy Sim’s Park” whose formation looks so good to the eyes. The glass house too is quite rich in terms of its collection of plants inside. Our kids too had their share of fun gazing fishes in the pond. They immensely enjoyed the seesaw, swings and the playground slide. They were so immersed in their play that we had to forcibly pull them out so that we could move to the next destination.

“Nice Place to Relax”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Its impressive when you think that the entire park over 18 acres was the brainchild and efforts of one man who brought hundreds of trees from scores of countries, took them all the way up the Nilgiris and made such a beautiful park. It is quite well maintained and the Lake at the bottom of the park is an ideal place to relax adjoining a small playground for kids (some a little too old). The lake actually has a lot of fish, drop a few breadcrumbs or corn and see the pond come alive. Get ready to leave well before closing time, the walk all the way upto the gate can be quite tiring.
Nice place to relax. We actually went back the next day.

“A huge garden in the middle of the city”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Sim's Park, Coonoor is a huge, clean and well-maintained garden in the middle of the city. One can do paddle boating in the tiny lake inside or click photos with the variety of trees.Nothing special.
