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
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||+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.|
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.
