Honor or commemorate a special person or pet with a tree in their name.  At Shelby Farms Park, we are planting One Million Trees.  Your gift is symbolic and helps to plant these trees within the Park and also ensures the longevity of our forests by assisting with ongoing care and upkeep.  We will send a letter and special certificate to the honoree or their family informing them of your gift.


A unique way to honor, celebrate, or remember a special person or commemorate a special moment or acheivement is by naming a bench at Shelby Farms Park. This exclusive opportunity makes a lasting impact on the Park, while paying tribute to a loved one or providing visible corporate recognition!

These custom benches are available in select areas of the Park including around Hyde Lake, at the Woodland Discovery Playground, and along the Shelby Farms Greenline and Chickasaw Trail.  

To learn more about naming a bench at Shelby Farms Park or to schedule a personal tour of available benches, contact Caleb Tinkle, Senior Development Manager at ctinkle@shelbyfarmspark.org or (901) 222-7248.

Honor Pets

Dog Tags
Want to make play possible for your favorite pup?  Personalized dog tags not only represent a tribute to an adored four-legged friend, but also an investment in The Outback Off-Leash Area (sponsored by our friends at Jim Keras Subaru). These tags hang on a special sign in the Dog Park. Support from dog park fans help keep this special place clean, green, safe and cared for.

These tags come in a variety shapes and in official Park colors. Choose your favorite on the order form!

The tags are $50 each and all proceeds from the sale of these tags help maintain The Outback Off-Leash Dog Park and give our dogs a place to do what they do best - run, play, socialize and just have some dog-gone fun! 

The tribute wall is made possible by 

Legacy Walk Paver Stones
Honor a special pet or pet-lover with a Legacy Walk Paver Stone located at the entrance to The Outback Off-Leash Area. With your donation, your personalized engraved paver stone is added to the welcoming walkway in the The Outback!

Gift of Garden

Honor the special people in your life with the Gift of Garden by having flowers planted in their honor at Shelby Farms Park!  The flowers planted through the Gift of Garden include vibrant varieties, such as black-eyed Susans, asters, mums, bergamot and coneflowers. These beautiful bouquets will bloom around Hyde Lake, and, year after year, symbolize your gift.

With a tax-deductible donation of $50, your Gift of Garden will begin to blossom! A card will be sent to your special recipient notifying them of your gift. Plus, they will receive a packet of five exclusive, hand-designed, floral notecards. 

While locations or types of flowers cannot be specified and no plaques will be placed in the Park, whenever you see the colorful blooms around Shelby Farms Park, you will know that yours are among them!
