Acquired in 1917, the Arthur B. Sim Memorial Park is divided into two areas - the Sim Park Municipal Golf Course and a large picnic area. The Old Cowtown Museum also rests on a portion of Sim Park.

Land and Water Conservation Funds, provided by the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks and the National Park Service, have been used to develop this park.

Arthur Barnes Sim, 1882 to 1916, was an oil man and only son of Wichita real estate businessman, Coler L. Sim. After Arthur's death, his father donated 157 acres to the City and asked that the land be used as a park and golf course in Arthur's memory.

Arthur B. Sim Golf Course

At 6,330 yards, the par 71 course offers a somewhat simple layout, although the tree-lined fairways do lead to well-bunkered greens. Sim is the City's busiest course, generating nearly 40,000 rounds annually.

Open Shelter

One open shelter (60 feet by 30 feet) with lighting and electrical receptacles. The restroom facility is adjacent to the open shelter on the west side.
