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 roadmap 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.

First time visiting, but this park is gorgeous. Lots of quiet walking trails, both paved and unpaved, and many lakes for kayaking. I'm looking forward to checking out the kayak rental options, and touring the farm areas. They also seem to have festivals and events hosted here, with a lake side restaurant that will be opening soon. Definitely a good place for some outdoor activity.
The walking/ running path around the lake is always really well kept, and is nice and wide for traffic in both directions. There's a separate path for bikes to make it even easier for everyone to make room (even if the bikes don't always use it for some reason). Renting kayaks and paddle boards was easy and fun, now just waiting for a restaurant to fill in again and it will be all set!
