#1 of 12 in Things to do in Coonoor
Weave your way around snaking staircases, hidden paths, and perfectly kept lawns at Sim`s Park, a lush attraction in the heart of Conoor. Boasting more than a 1,000 species of tropical plants, the park is a colorful sanctuary with a hillside location. Enjoy a quiet ramble through a well-kept botanical landscape, keeping a keen eye out for the crimson tinted rosefinch, often found on the aromatic branches of the cinnamomum trees scattered across the park. Established in 1874, the garden remains a popular spot and can get quite busy at the weekends. Restrooms and concessions are located on site. Take the guesswork out of planning a Coonoor vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • One of the prime attractions in upper Coonoor. For a green area surrounded by rolling tea estates, hills and valleys, this park is extremely average fare. Probably will be great when many of the plants are in bloom. We were here in May 2017. Poor upkeep , on going maintenance etc had parts of the park closed. A very small lake and some boating available. Plenty of walkways. Not recommended for people with walking issues and elderly. Good for morning walks. Opens about 7am.
  • A great place for tree lovers. It has an awesome arsenal of trees and flowers spread across a huge area. The atmosphere is very soothing and calm. Usually gets highly crowded on weekends.Very beautiful garden is this, really loved.
  • Good place, well maintained, good for both kids as well as adults. Lots of rare species of trees can be seen here. Very good climate even on summer days.
  • Wonderfully well maintained huge park in Coonoor. One of the topmost destinations to chill in Coonoor. Yeah.... For people who are not that fascinated by the beauty of trees and plants will find the place normal. Nevertheless the boating facilities and huge picnic spots are a plus.
  • I have gone yesterday (10.6.17). Its an awesome garden in conoor with varieties of beautiful flowers. Visitors will have a best time over there. One can feel the aroma of the beautiful flowers.
