At 4,500 acres, Shelby Farms Park is one of the largest urban parks in the country! Located in Memphis, Tennessee, the Park is both a vibrant community hub and a retreat from the hustle and bustle of urban life. Plus, the Park is home to a herd of buffalo! Cool, right?
Whether you play the Park on foot, on wheels, in the trees, in the open or on the water, Shelby Farms Park has something for everyone! With 40+ miles of trails (paved and unpaved), there are nearly endless opportunities to run, hike, bike and walk. The Park’s trail network includes Shelby Farms Greenline, a 10+ mile rails-to-trails project that transformed an unused rail line into one of Tennessee’s most iconic cycling and pedestrian trails! The Greenline connects the heart of Memphis to the heart of Cordova through Shelby Farms Park.
The Park is also home to more than 20 bodies of water, including 80-acre Hyde Lake.
