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. 
The Park features more than 40 miles of trails, both paved and unpaved, that are popular for walking, biking, running and hiking. The Park's trail network includes Shelby Farms Greenline, an iconic 10.65 mile paved cycling and pedestrian trail that 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 which provide plenty of opportunities for fishing. 

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!


Creating a positive Visitor Experience is at the core of our Park mission, and your feedback helps us continue to make Shelby Farms Park America's next great urban park.

Parks are powerful places for strengthening communities, and in stressful times like these, they play an important role in community health and well-being. Spending time in nature and engaging in physical activity can reduce stress and lower anxiety, which is beneficial not only now, but also for long-term health.

At this time, Shelby Farms Park will remain open with regular operating hours. Our goal is to remain open as a resource for the community for as long as it is safely possible.

Shelby Farms Park Conservancy (SFPC) is closely monitoring the rapidly changing developments of the COVID-19 situation and will continue to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) guidelines, as well as the recommendations of local health officials. 

The safety and well-being of our visitors, volunteers and staff is our top priority. Here are some of the ways we’re staying on top of this:

  • We are educating staff on preventive measures outlined by the CDC and local health officials.
  • While we already maintain high cleaning standards, we are increasing the frequency of cleaning procedures.
  • Some programs, activities and events may be temporarily suspended or rescheduled, or canceled. Updates closures, postponements and cancellations will be posted at the top of this section.

While we would love to see you in the park, if you’re feeling sick, we urge you to stay home and to follow the CDC’s recommendations.

Stay safe and healthy, Park fans.
