1 Office with 3 desks
2 Bathrooms, each with 1 shower room, 3 stalls & sinks, toddler potty.
1 Cardio room
1 Strength Training room
Pool room
Track on 2nd floor looking down into the pool room
Kid's room and playground

Lot Cost: $155,337

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

1. first extracting the .rar file to a folder or desktop, etc... anywhere where you can easily reach the .sims2pack file that it creates.

2. Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location.


3. which should prompt the TS3 launcher, and then start to automatically install itself.

4. you should have a window that pops up and states: Highlandpark{1}.sims2pack Success! Done.

5. click okay, go into the game, and the lot should be in the community lots section.

Hope this works

I wasn't able to recreate this issue with 2 different sims; however, i was only able to test it for about 5 minutes. I'll attempt again as soon as i have a chance and notify you through a PM if I find a problem and fix it.

How do you get it to be classed as a Gym in the map screen? When I build a gym it just has a bench icon for a community lot, not a gym icon???

Pretty sure the game auto-detects if it is a gym or not. At first when I was building this lot I didn't have any work-out/athletic equipment and just had a pool and the game detected it as a pool; however, once i added the gym equipment it changed to gym.

Thanks so much for this lot. It's the only gym I ever use now. Oh, and I had a similar problem with the entrance. All sims entering the building would go through the front door and then sprint over to the children's area for no reason. xD I actually just removed that whole section, door and all, and it works perfectly now. Thanks again. =]
