We have big news, Park fans!
Over the course of the next few weeks, a new Greenline access point will be constructed at the Appling Road crossing! This much-needed access point will physically connect the Greenline with the paved Chickasaw Trail in Shelby Farms Park. We are excited about this new connection, which wouldn’t have been possible without support from Mid-South Regional Greenprint and Shelby County Commissioners Steve Basar, George Chism and David Reaves!
Over the next few weeks, you may experience some temporary disruptions in your regular route, but have no fear -- the trails will remain open!
Here’s a birds eye view of the project:
Gates 9 and 10 will be temporarily and intermittently closed as the new connector trail section is graded and paved. You will still be able to access the event field and Chickasaw Trail from Gate 8, and the Woodland Discovery Playground, Go Ape, Pine Lake Boat House, Stables and Beaver Lake will be accessible via Gate 1 off of Farm Road and through the Event Center entrance off of Walnut Grove.
We can’t wait to hit the new trail with you, and we appreciate your patience as we complete this exciting project!
Stay tuned for opening details!
Work is being done by MLG&W near the Walnut Grove bridge at the Wolf River in the Lucius Burch Natural Area. Pleaes be alert in this area.
