A beloved destination for hiking, kayaking, horseback riding, family-focused activities and more.
Shelby Farms Park features natural habitats as well as formal recreation spaces. Locals and tourists favor the green space for its plentiful multi-use trails, while the unspoiled forests and wetlands offer plenty of spots for birding and wildlife watching. A 100-acre dog park provides off-leash fun for pups and their owners.
Shelby Farms Park is one of the largest urban parks in America, stretching across 4,500 acres in Shelby County and located just east of Downtown Memphis. The massive multi-use green space is five times the size of New York City’s Central Park and features more than 40 miles of paved and unpaved trails for hiking, cycling and horseback riding, as well as a 10-mile Greenline that connects the city to Cordova in Shelby County.
