Sim's Park

Sim's Park in Coonoor

A small park, it boasts of many trees from different parts of the world like Texas, Australia, Canary Islands, and so on. The trees are located in a oval area sloping from all sides, with a small pond at the bottom.

The main attraction is the trees, some more than 100 years old. The trees include Araucaria, Quercus, Phoenix, Magnolia, Pine, Turpentine, Tree ferns, and Camellia.

The park is clean, but not necessarily neat - so there are cracked tiles and other items that need maintenance.

Definitely worth a visit, if you are in Coonoor.

"Park has been maintained very well, but the staff are unfriendly and only look at the visitors in the aspect of making as much money as possible. I had carried a camera and my friend who bought the tickets forgot to mention the camera and it's fee. A staff inside the park had begun bothering about the camera and wasn't willing to excuse nor allow to take it into custody so that I could collect it back. I had to turn back and only then made his way clear for others to wander around. Nice tourism development will they have in the future, with this kind of mindset. Maybe he was expecting something, which I wasn't willing to pay. They should restrict at the entry itself rather than embarrassing and making the tourists unhappy. So to hell with these people. "
