“A Jewel in the middle of Shelby County”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

One of the best parks in the country. Plenty of room with plenty to do. Great for families, runners, walkers, bikers, and hikers. And, it's FREE!

“Kids Didn't Want to Leave”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

Fun time spent outside. It was great to see the buffalo roam. Lots of beautiful kites being flown. Great place to co for a walk or bike ride. The kids loved the new playground. Lots of fun spots, unlike any other playground!!

“Busy but unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

There are playground features at the Shelby farms playground that you won't find at other parks. Kids love it. The only negative is that it can get really busy on weekends and summer holidays. Try to go early in the morning on a week day. My kids love the playground. The rest of Shelby farms is beautiful and massive. Bring a picnic or your dog and have a whole day adventure.

“Starry nights were amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

I remembered this fun seasonal great from my childhood and took my new husband, grandfather, and newborn son to it this year. It didn't disappoint. From the 80s down to 5 months, all ages enjoyed the amazing light displays. The 5 month old stared at the sights all around with wonderment. Other than wrapping paper, it's the best gift you could give to a newborn!

Perfect for bike riders, walkers, joggers- plenty of trails for mountain bikes. So clean and beautiful - lakes, sun-worshipers welcome. The staff loves this place and take tremendous pride in offering it to everyone
