Sylvan Glade is one of the few secret lots in The Sims 4. If you want to discover how to get to this secret place, continue reading this guide!


The Mysterious Lot of Sylvan Glade

If you have been playing The Sims 4 for a long time, you may have probably heard or read about the mystical place called Sylvan Glade. It is a hidden part of Willow Creek. Unlike other areas of the Sims world, this mysterious place cannot easily be accessed and cannot be found on the map.

Not only is it concealed from the eyes of the common Sim, but it is charmingly eerie and full of surprises. Now, how exactly do your Sims visit this famed location in the game?

Getting To Sylvan Glade

To get to this secret lot, your Sim will have to be in Willow Creek first. The only passage that connects the rest of the world with the Sylvan Glade is located in the Foundry Cove neighborhood. Once your Sim reaches the Foundry Cove, search for the Crick Cabana residential lot.

Not far from it, you will find a magical tree, called the Sylvan tree. You will notice it looks different than all other trees in the area. Its trunk slightly resembles a bonsai tree and its branches look richer than those of the surrounding trees. This tree will be your Sim’s portal to discover the Sylvan Glade location.

Interacting with The Sylvan Tree

Once your Sim approaches the tree, the only option they will have unlocked is the “View” option, just like you’d have with any other object. Your Sim will have to view the tree a few times to unlock more interactions with the tree. They will have to somehow convince the tree to reveal the hidden passage to the secret lot and continuously interacting with the tree is the only way to do it. Viewing it a couple of times will unlock a few additional options, such as:

  • Water
  • Compliment Leaves
  • Chat About Roots

You’ll want to try these interactions multiple times. This will strengthen the bond with the tree and encourage it to reveal the hidden passage in its trunk. Once the passage is revealed, you’ll be able to click on “Explore”. Any Sims patient and curious enough about the tree will be granted access to the secret lot.

Opening a Portal to Sylvan Glade

Opening a portal won’t take your Sim directly to the secret lot. First, you’ll have to complete a little game the tree has for you. You’ll get a screen dialogue named Tree Adventure, so be prepared to play. If you fail to win, you’ll be restricted from trying to enter Sylvan Glade for a while. In this case, expect your Sims to be in an embarrassed mood for a few hours. To enter the hidden lot successfully, choose these options in the following order below.

  1. Follow the Sound
  2. Follow Downstream
  3. Enter the Mist
  4. Travel to Glade

If you see a loading screen, expect to find your Sim in Sylvan Glade soon! They can stay in the area as long as their mood and needs don’t require tending to. To let them return, simply use the tree to transport them back to Willow Creek. Successfully completing the Tree Adventure riddle from the tree already grants unlimited access to Sylvan Glade, allowing a permanent entryway to your Sims. Once they get to Sylvan Glade, they will be able to return anytime simply by clicking on the portal on the tree. One pro tip: If your Sims have reached a higher level of Wellness skills, kudos to them! With Level 7 Wellness skills, they will unlock the ability to teleport to Sylvan Glade while meditating.

The Perks of Sylvan Glade

Sylvan Glade looks like a dreamy, pinkish, fairytale-like world. It’s all nature and no crowd. Once your Sim reaches the place, they will have access to a view of purple trees, a pond where they can fish, and a dreamy lake with a waterfall. The place is full of places to dig in and collect collectibles. When it comes to Sylvan Glade plants, Sims will be able to collect bluebells, strawberries, basils, mushrooms, lilies, and snapdragons. The lot also has pear trees and cherry trees.

Sims will also get access not only to rare plants, insects, and frogs, but also to rare fish. It is only on this lot that they will be able to catch Treefish in the pond. Once they catch it, a treefish can be sold for a price that ranges from $151 to $375. Sims will also be able to catch other rare species such as the following:

  • Rainbowfish
  • Gummie Guppie
  • Tilapia
  • ”Captain Fishbones”
  • Bonefish
  • Anglerfish
  • Exotic Goldfish

Sylvan Glade is not only a paradise for those hoping to collect rare collectibles. It is also a paradise for Vampires. Since the lot is in the constant twilight zone, Vampires who get her won’t be affected by the sun and will be able to stay here as long as their needs allow them to. Sweet!

Helpful Sylvan Glade Cheats on The Sims 4

Although it is a secret lot, the gameplay doesn’t allow you to build here or change the looks of the Sylvan Glade lot. You’ll notice right away that there are no buildings or objects found here. This can be an obstacle since your character won’t be able to stay too long on the lot due to hunger, bladder, and other needs. Unless, of course, you use cheats.

For any cheat to work, you’ll first have to activate cheats by pressing SHIFT+CTRL+C and typing testingcheats true in the box at the top of your screen and then pressing enter. To stay as long as you like and have all their needs met you can use sims.fill_all_commodities cheat.

If you don’t mind changing the mystical appearance of the lot and would like to add objects there, you’d want to try bb.enablefreebuild cheat. The cheat will unlock and make the Sylvan Glade Sims 4 build option available. This will allow you to modify the look of the lot and add furniture. However, know that this is a very small lot, and even when unlocked, you won’t be able to add a whole lot of furniture.
