Sim's Park is an unusual park-cum-botanical garden, which was laid more than a hundred years ago on the natural hill ranges. The garden features ethnic trees along with shrubs and creepers which co-habit with various other trees brought from thought the world.
The park is named after Mr. J.D. Sim, former Secretary to Government, and Major Murray, a pioneer whose efforts helped to set up garden in 1874. The site is positioned in the north side of Coonoor railway station, at an altitude of 1,770 m above sea level. Sprawling over an area of 12 hectares, the garden occupies the inclined area and base of a ravine.
Highlights of the garden are Queensland Karry Pine, Rudraksha (the bead tree) and Handsome Ornamental tree. Sim’s park along with Botanical Garden has the largest repository of temperate plants in India. Due to this fact, Sim's Park is a destination of significance for botanists.
