Park is a type of community lot in The Sims and The Sims 2, and a lot assignment in The Sims 3.

The Sims and The Sims 2Edit

The Sims and The Sims 2 did not allow community lots to be specifically designated as parks, but a community lot could be designed as a park. In The Sims, Downtown and Old Town each had a park. In The Sims 2, parks are a common feature of neighborhoods and sub-neighborhoods, though not all will have a park.

The Sims 3Edit

Park lots attract Sims in a similar way to gym and pool lots. Lots can be set as small or large, which dictates how many Sims will gather there. Parks often feature grills and picnic tables.

As a lot assignment, parks provide the Beautiful Park moodlet:

Image Moodlet Name Mood Effect Time Period From Game Dialog/Description Notes Expansion
Beautiful Park Beautiful Park +15 - Park Lot The money City Hall put into this park was well spent! Swing sets, slides and jungle gyms, oh my! Does not appear if Sim has Hates the Outdoors trait.
TS3 Icon


There are two types of lot assignments for park lots: Big Park and Small Park. These influence the boost of the moodlet, and also the number of Sims that will visit the lot. Magician NPCs appear at Big Park lots. Some of the lots listed on this page are actually No Visitors Allowed and Visitors Allowed lots. They generate a park map tag, but do not give the moodlets associated with true parks. The only true park lots added in The Sims 3: World Adventures are the Emperor's Plaza and the Hot Springs.

With Showtime, it is possible to add a stage to a park, which will allow that park to host some types of gigs. This can also be done in graveyardsfishing spots and beaches.
