  • What an amazing place with something for everyone!! Hiking, bike riding, horses, ropes course, paddle boats...a lot of variety. We also want to check out the dog park next time and will definitely go ...  more »
  • The looks of this area, alone, is enough to make me go back. We were unable to do everything they have to offer here, but the horse back riding was really well worth it.  more »

  • Absolutely gorgeous! A wonderful park with lots to do that is free to the public (some activities inside like ziplining, camel rides, or canoeing incur costs). I have lived in Memphis for almost seven years now, and I always make time to go out to Shelby Farms and enjoy it. They have races, concerts, farmers markets, and many festivals all in the area. It is continuing to expand too. Only wonderful things to say.
  • Memphis had needed a restaurant like this in Shelby Farms for a long time. Wonderful outdoor and indoor seating with views of remodeled Patriot lake. Large bar area inside and great views of the lake with oversize ceiling fans outside. Reservations are highly recomended but no dress code. Parking can be dicey but for $8 the valet will take care of it for you. If your table isn't ready, enjoy the area next to the restaurant for some multiple games of corn hole. Brunch is also an option on Saturday and Sunday with Mimosas and a great mean that changes seasonally. Prices are a little on the high side but the food is well worth it and offers large portions. The wait staff is great with excellent bar tenders and hostesses to match. All in all a great new experience for Memphis.
  • Went for a 1-hr horseback ride after marking that I have "0-10 hours experience." I'm definitely a beginner but I had fun. The staff give you plenty of honest warnings and helpful advice if something were to go wrong. Make sure that you get a reservation before you go and show up early. Andy and Will were very helpful and patient with our group. It's a little pricey but I definitely enjoyed my time. Most of the path is shady and despite being 90F, I didn't get too hot.
  • I absolutely love this park and the many things it has to offer. Our favorite part is the Outback off-leash dog area where my pup can walk freely for miles along with other well behaved pets. They offer many events throughout the year, but there are many daily activities to try like bike riding around the lake, fishing, horseback riding, zip lining (GoApe) and all while having the ability to visit the live buffalo who live on site. This park is large, beautiful and well maintained. Definitely one of my favorite parts of Memphis.
  • I usually go to this place to get some exercise for my little brother and I(which he needs) while taking in the sights of the place. I've been going to this park for years, and THOROUGLY enjoy the addition of the lake. The Kitchette is a good addition, though I'd prefer a place with a little more variety. End of story, I love this park. Been wanting to try the laser tag location. If it is great, I may give 5 stars. Will update...
