The Sims 4 Hidden Area:
Finding Sylvan Glade
There are two hidden areas included in The Sims 4, one in each World - The Forgotten Grotto in Oasis Springs, and Sylvan Glade in Willow Creek. All Sims may enter Sylvan Glade with no special requirements, while the other requires max Handiness. Once you've unlocked these areas, you can easily return to them at any time without having to go through all those steps - just travel to the neighborhood and head right in!
Here is a video walkthrough for Finding Sylvan Glade. Watch it here or follow the link to subscribe to our channel for content notifications.
Where to find Sylvan Glade in Willow Creek
Hidden Area: Sylvan Glade
Travel to Crick Cabana in Willow Creek, above, and look for the big, mystical-looking tree in the Screenshot below.
Water, then talk to this Tree to enter Sylvan Glade
View the Tree a couple of times, then the Water option should pop up. After watering it a few times, I had the option to 'Chat about Roots', then 'Compliment on Leaves' and finally, 'Explore'.

From there, you must again make the right choices, but get as many tries as you like. Select Follow the Sound, Travel Downstream, Enter the Mist, Travel to Glade.
Catching a Treefish in The Sims 4's Sylvan Glade Hidden Area
Now you are in a reliable place to catch a valuable and rare Treefish! There are also Plants you may not have, and places to search for Frogs and Dig. I am sure the spawners in the Glade are more likely to spit out rare collectibles, just like those in the Grotto.
