“4,500 acres of green space”
Shelby Farms Park lies in the heart of Shelby County in Memphis, Tennessee – 4,500 acres of green space, a community treasure, unrivaled in size and potential anywhere else in the United States. After years of threats from commercial development and disputes over land use, the Park is now protected by a conservation easement and perfectly positioned to achieve its potential as the next great 21st-century park. The Park’s bold and visionary Master Plan is a road map to greatness – not just for Shelby Farms Park, but for our community. With several exciting demonstration projects funded, open and garnering national attention, the Master Plan is putting Memphis on the map in a whole new way. Shelby Farms Park and Shelby Farms Greenline are managed and operated by the 501(c)3 nonprofit organization Shelby Farms Park Conservancy. Our vision is to give rise to a celebrated 21st century park that defines and shapes a great city. Each year, we raise more than $2 million (more than 75% of our operating budget) to manage and operate Shelby Farms Park and the Shelby Farms Greenline.
Hard to believe there aren’t more reviews for this amazing park! There are miles and miles of trails (hiking, biking & rentals available), multiple playgrounds, amazing lights at Christmastime, multiple lakes (fishing & kayak rentals available). There is also horseback riding, and a treetop adventure & zip line. You could spend an entire week here and do something different every single day!
We visited Shelby Farms Park in July 2016. Everything was clean, well maintained, and our sons (preschoolers at the time) loved the playgrounds. We will definitely return next time we’re in the area.
