“A little something for everyone!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

No matter what one may enjoy such as walking, running, biking, family picnic place; it's here! There's the Greenline that affords walkers, runners and biker's the opportunity to add a little variety to their sport. Bikes are available for rental; however, they go fast. Want to enjoy some nature? Walk, run or bike the various trails within the park. There are several picnic areas with playgrounds for children. And if you just want to sit and reflect, you can find a place to sit and relax. Want to take Fido for fresh air and meet other furry friends? Then, head for the dog park area. There's even a dog water station and dog rinsing station for dogs that like to romp in the small pond. If you're looking for a new furry friend? Check out the Humane Society situated within the property. This is a no-kill shelter. Want to volunteer? Ask about becoming a dog walker. Oh...and don't miss the livestock on this property. It's uncommon to see a herd of Buffalo in a municipal park. But, just another unique element to this lovely resource. First time at Shelby Farms. Stop by the Visitor Center for info. You wouldn't want to miss anything.

“Great escape with plenty to do”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Have been here several times with the family. Kids love the playgrounds, and the walking tracks are numerous. Plenty to keep the avid runner, walker, nature enthusiast, or loafer busy for at least a couple hours. Park is usually clean and presentable. We always have an enjoyable time. Note though that on hot summer days the slide are unbearably hot! The park does accommodate you with sliding pads.

“Nice Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Very spacious park. Great for outdoor events or just a place to go for biking or running. Has some hills. Parking can be a little tricky if you are not sure which part if the park you are visiting.

“Ideal Running”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I'm a college student in the city and when I have time I love to come running out here. It's a huge park that is always filled with families. Activities range from runners like me to fishing, seeing the bison, fishing, boating and a disc golf course. There is also horse back riding and mountain biking areas. Beautiful, well kept park!
