Shelby Farms Park
Shelby Farms Park is conveniently located in the center of Shelby County, making it an alluring attraction for the entire region. With more than one million visits a year, the Park is a popular destination for locals, a regional draw and a tourist attraction. New pedestrian connections like the Shelby Farms Greenline, Wolf River Pedestrian Bridge and Wolf River Greenway have dramatically increased accessibility.

Shelby Farms Park is one of the twenty largest urban parks in the United States.  At a size of 4,500 acres, it covers more than five times the area of New York's Central Park. Lakes, natural forests, and wetlands provide natural habitats for many smaller species close to an urban metropolitan area. Wildlife can be observed in their natural environment from the many trails in the park. Shelby Farms Park is also home to a bison herd!

Shelby Farms park is bustling with activity - walkers and joggers on forest paths or paved surfaces; off-road cyclists headed for hidden forest trails and road cyclists cruising, equestrians putting their horses through paces; visitors riding at the Stables; athletes training for the Greenline Half Marathon; picnickers reclining on blankets; boatball members congregating on Patriot Lake; parties and reunions being enjoyed at shelters; and delighted children exploring the Woodland Discovery Playground. There is something for everyone at Shelby Farms
