“Excellent outdoor fun for all sports, all ages”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2013

Shelby Farms has it all...awesome dog park, kite flying field, hiking trials, bike paths, picnic areas, a lake with pedal boat rental, geocaching, fishing, you name it. If there's an outdoor activity you like to do, you can probably do it here. And best of all it's free to enter the park.

“My first 1/2 Marathon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

The room at Extended Stay was horrible, filthy and we had no towels to bath with, we had to go out and buy towels to shower with. Wanted t rest after the Marathon, but kids were running up and down the hall making lots of noise.

“Wonderful Memphis Resource”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

A beautiful gem in the heart of east Memphis. Beautifully maintained. This park has something for almost everyone. Farmers Market, walking/running/biking trails, fishing, horseback riding, paddle boats...Buffalo! This is a beautiful park. I love the Greenline, a wonderful paved trail for hiking and biking that winds through the park and flows into the heart of the city. In my opinion this is one of Memphis' finest resources.

“A little something for everyone!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2013

No matter what one may enjoy such as walking, running, biking, family picnic place; it's here! There's the Greenline that affords walkers, runners and biker's the opportunity to add a little variety to their sport. Bikes are available for rental; however, they go fast. Want to enjoy some nature? Walk, run or bike the various trails within the park. There are several picnic areas with playgrounds for children. And if you just want to sit and reflect, you can find a place to sit and relax. Want to take Fido for fresh air and meet other furry friends? Then, head for the dog park area. There's even a dog water station and dog rinsing station for dogs that like to romp in the small pond. If you're looking for a new furry friend? Check out the Humane Society situated within the property. This is a no-kill shelter. Want to volunteer? Ask about becoming a dog walker. Oh...and don't miss the livestock on this property. It's uncommon to see a herd of Buffalo in a municipal park. But, just another unique element to this lovely resource. First time at Shelby Farms. Stop by the Visitor Center for info. You wouldn't want to miss anything.
