Custom Park Tours
Guided tours introduce visitors to the history of Shelby Farms Park and to the plans and amenities that are shaping its bright future. These tours are led by interpretive docents, and the programs can be customized to accommodate all abilities -- from highly activity walking tours to drive-through tours for groups with limited mobility. Tours must be scheduled in advance.
Take a hands-on walking tour of the native tree species that call the Park, "home!" Guided arboretum tours provide an opportunity to see, touch and ask questions about these special trees.
Groups of 10 or more are encouraged to make a $25 suggested donation to help keep the Park clean, green and safe.
