Sim's Park, Coonoor Reviews - Write a Review
It is a good place for a half day picnic. Boating is there. We can relax in the nature. Garden is wonderful. Restrooms are there. Nursery is there. Outside the park, we can buy exotic fruits like tree tomato, passion fruit, wild custard Apple. No good restaurants nearby.
The place is calm. Good for a walk or to seat and enjoy the nature. You can see variety of trees and plants here. Botanical names of some of them can be seen nearby, maybe on the tree itself or on a board next to it. It will take at least an hour to freely roam around the park. Also, there were fishes in the pond that is in the center of the park. It's open till 6:30 pm. You will notice more couples in the park than nature enthusiasts.
Steep Climb down the hill. Boating was not worth the place. Lot many herbal plants. Fresh air with lots of rare birds. Good place for ornithologist. Difficult to climb up again.
Sloppy Green grass, Very aged Tall trees with their name & detail written in boards on it. lots of flowers, chill climate and many more things to enjoy here. Park map found in the entrance. I saw some lovers romancing & crossing limit in this public place which make family like us feel very bad. There is a kids play area & small pedal boating pond is there. Less crowded in November December time. Just picked fresh carrot sold outside the park. Blum's, Pitches, Clustered apple and many fruits which are only available in hill stations are sold on outside road
A place to spend an hour or more and breath in the clear air. There are many aged trees, with their year of planting and place of origin given on them. There's a social Roses section which wasn't in full bloom when we visited as it was right after the monsoons. It's pretty steep from the entrance to the lowest point in the park. So better take a walk around each level rather than running from one level to next. People of all age groups will definitely find this park beautiful and relaxing.
