Nothing bad can be said about this park. Plan to spend the day because your kids will not want to leave. Great place for a picnic and the ice cream truck has lots of goodies...not too expensive.

I lived in Memphis for 4 years and visited Shelby Farms every weekend. The area is well-kept and there is ample space for kids and dogs to run and play.

This park is amazing. It has a full restaurant, a sandwich shoppe, a great gift shop, restrooms, lake and woods. Plenty of places to hike, ride bikes, walk, picnic, run, you name it. Great park. Not far away from City Center.

There is no fee to get into and explore around the park. In terms of attractions, you can rent a bike or a canoe which will be about $20. There's a cafe to stop at as well.
