Heart of the Park Enhancement
Shelby Farms Park is excited to announce major improvements that will give the park new amenities, more adventures, healthier ecology and a lot more to love.
Heart of the Park is a visionary reimagining of Patriot Lake - a well-loved but ecologically dysfunctional lake in the center of the Park, which was created when dirt was needed to cap a nearby landfill.
From humble beginnings, the Heart of the Park will become a vibrant and diverse community hub, an environmental teaching tool, an important part of the business plan to sustain the Park, a gathering place for health and recreation, relaxation and big water adventure. It will be an exemplar for innovative urban landscape design, environmentally responsive architecture, and world class programming for health, happiness and inclusion for the Mid-South.
We invite you to look over the site to learn about all of the new amenities, the phases of construction, the map of the proposed additions, and the ways our upgrades will affect the current state of the park.
We are excited about what's to come, and we want you to be a part of it every step of the way. Check out these links to learn more:
