  • Weekends are crowded with lots of children. No problems among children, is a peaceful Park. I would play all day because there are plenty of toys.

  • Because once is not enough, we actually visited Shelby Farms 3X in 2.5 weeks. The superbly maintained “farm” is a 4,500 acre playland for people and animals. Every time we went we found people everywh...  more »
  • Very nice city park with many trails lakes and even Buffalo. I hate the 100 character limit. And plenty of biking paths.  more »

  • This is an awesome park. It makes you feel far away while being right inside the city. There are several lakes for boating and fishing. You can rent kayaks, canoes and paddle boards. There is a dirt bike track, bike rentals, miles of biking and hiking trails with bike fixing stations along the way. There are plenty of picnic pavilions and an awesome event center. They have a great farm to table restaurant on site as well. The Go Ape treetop ropes course is top notch.
  • Haven't been here with the time to look around in a while. The place in amazing. What a different park from 20 years ago. The new playground is nice but the sand pit is unsanitary and nasty. But that isn't the management's fault. Just a bunch of lazy parents and unsupervised children. Kids in diapers rolling around in the sand and the wet sand area is horrid. But everything else is awesome.
  • For a 10K run, I highly recommend the Tour de Wolf trail. It is well marked at most places, traverses multiple landscapes, and not crowded. Approximately 2/3 of the trail are in wooded areas and well shaded. Don't run with headphones, as there are occasional mountain bikers. Also look for the food and beer trucks down by the First Tennessee Visitor's Center on Saturdays!
  • One of the largest urban nature parks in the U.S. It’s sprawling with fields, woods & ponds. Hiking, biking, horseback riding, paddle boating, zip-lining & a tree canopy course. It also has one of the most interesting play ground designs I’ve ever seen, featuring multiple interconnected pods, each with different themes, as well as a fantastic gift shop. If you want some fresh air, scenery & exercise, this is a perfect place to spend the day.
  • We rented bikes and enjoyed the park and green line trail. Very helpful associate at the bike rental station near the green line. We were there at opening Sunday 9/2 and would like for her to be recognized!
