Farmer's corner is such a wonderful area for a club meeting place for Gardeners and I I adore the Barn its so pretty
it would also be nice for a romantic Date I can see a couple sitting at the fire and one serenading the other with the guitar
Gorgeous and so realistic.
I was playing the base game of the Desert Bloom park in Oasis Springs…and I realized its a really boring and rather ugly lot. Even so, I love this area of Oasis Springs. It looks really cool, I just wish there was more nature related things for my sims to do, like camping or hiking. A place for them to learn more about the nature
So I decided to do some major renovations! This has all the build elements required for a park/museum/national park/pool so you can switch between all lot types.
Welcome to Desert Bloom National Park
The rest under the spoilers!
Your sims can enter the Desert Bloom Visitor’s Center. I used a lot of Ecoliving windows and doors designed to allow more ventilation indoors. The building’s stucco exterior helps it fit into the environment as well.
Entering the front door, there is a children’s play area and reading room that's toddler and child friendly. Its decorated with a dinosaur theme. Perfect place for your kiddos to do their homework!
To the left is a library area with bookshelves and computers.
The rest of the building consists of am exhibit depicting local fossils your sim might discover in the area (plus an archeology table)
And an exhibit depicting some of the local flora and fauna your sim might find.
Going through the door, your sim will come out on a large lattice covered patio.
There are 2 research rooms, perfect for a science inclined sim. I did partially build this lot for a botanist sim of mine. She could do all of her work-at-home duties at here instead (sort of like a park ranger). There’s an office
And a microscope
Going back out the research rooms, your sim will find themselves in a community garden.
Here’s a view from above (with rooftop observation telescope)
Walking around to the front of the building, there is a play area for children
Walking down the path, your sim will find themselves back at the covered patio. There’s a grill, benches, and chess tables
And a public restroom
Now on to the park itself!
There is an entrance area with a map and park info
Your sim can hike down the landscaped path. They will come to a fork in the path
To the right, there’s a natural spring so typical of Oasis Springs, bubbling up from the rocky mesa in front, that’s stocked with fish native to Oasis Springs. Your sims will be able to fish here, or dive into the deeper area for a quick swim. Its overshadowed by a waterfall
To the left of the fork, is a camping area perfect for a larger group of sims.
Turning around, your sim will see a switchback trail extending up the top of the rock
Be prepared for a challenging hike! But its well with it.
At the top of the mesa, your sim will find an isolated, but romantic camp site. There’s a telescope, burn pit, and shower stall. Handier sims just might be able to break into the abandoned mine entrance!
There's fruiting trees everywhere. Its fully landscaped. There's bird trees intermixed in between (for a wildlife effect). Lots of bugs to look at, and the wild fox trait will ensure that the local wildlife visits.
Anyway this lot took me forever, but was so fun to build! It has been playtested. Definitely move objects on!
And a download link. Enjoy!! I am sarabeth6701d on the lot Gallery. I had to upload it on the Affluista Buttes lot because it photographs better there.
Great National Park
and I love the special walks to little camping areas and the indoor interesting rooms that sims can learn new things about the desert areas
I bet it did take ages as its so detailed with so much for sims to enjoy, I love your desert park with all those great areas including harvestables
