SIM’s Park, Coonoor, India
First we visited SIM’s Park, Coonoor. This park is famous for Old Trees from different parts part of our world. I felt difficul to see the top of most of the trees. I never seen such a single stem tree grew more than 100 feet.
Both the sides of the pavement (Walk consisting of a paved area for pedestrians; usually beside a street or roadway) there was a veriety of flowers planted in different shaps and rows.
We saw a 100 years old paper tree. Most of the visitors touched the paper tree. some of them scratched it to check weather in bears paper directely.
SIM’s park is a natural garden. The terrace was completely covered with colorful flower beds, lawns and rockeries (A garden featuring rocks; usually alpine plants). It was an initiative by Government of Tamilnadu, Department of Horticulture.
