So many things to do. The playground was great. There was so much space for the kids to run around and play, they weren't tripping over each other to go down a slide or swing on a swing. We went out on the paddle boats, and it was fun. My only complaints about that was I wish the body of... More

We visit almost every weekend for a walk and my kid likes to play in the playground. You can do a boat rides, kayaking, and there is a ApeGo adventure program as well.

Born and raised in Memphis, and I think this park is one of the bright spots in our city. Updates to the park have been finished, and now (2017) the park looks amazing. When the weather is good, the park is full of people kayaking, walking, biking, flying kites or picnicking - as parks should be. Even with all the... More

4,500 acres of green space in the heart of a big city. There are lots of trails for walks and lots of parking.

After all the renos, the park is amazing. Shelby Farms really provides everything from running trails to free yoga classes. The dogpark area is great with many lakes and green fields. the main area has a beautiful lake anf running and biking area. the only downside is teh restaurant, but on sundays they have food trucks!

I was on work travel and my hotel was close to one of the entrances. I downloaded the app to this park to my phone and each day took a nice long relaxing walk through the park. I didn't get a chance to see all there was to offer but really enjoyed the places I was able to walk through.... More

There's so much to do at Shelby Farms! We only had a few hours, so did some biking and buffalo exploring, but would have loved to spend more time. The visitor's center is your best first stop and there's a really cute gift shop next to it. One of the bike rental places in the park is right outside as... More

Shelby Farms is a great place to spend the day with the family. They have a variety of rental options including paddle boards and kayaks, a great walking/biking trail around the lake, and even a restaurant with the beautiful patio that overlooks the lake. In another area of the park you'll find a top-notch playground for the kids and horseback... More

Who ever came up with this came up with a good idea. My husband and I took the kids there last summer and it was a nice place for the m to run and play with other kids. Super hot, but it was still nice

Had an awesome afternoon yesterday kayaking. We each had single kayaks as the doubles were all being used. Worked out fine. Relaxing and enjoyable.
