I am a vendor at the MidSouth RenFaire which is held here for two weekends each year. I have had a chance to walk around the park and interact with not only the visitors but also the rangers. All in all a very good park to come and have a day out with many trails and nature walks all over.

This place was fantastic. There is a daily farmer's market, only closed on Sunday. There are ziplines, horseback riding, bmx bike track, farm fields to wander, bike paths, jogging paths, places for dogs to run. A wonderful RV park right next to the farmer's market. This place was great!

This is a very large park that had been undergoing some changes. Many trails for biking, walking, and jogging. They have an outstanding playground for young children with plenty of shade for the parents. You can ride horses for a fee and also rent paddle boats. The park contains a disc golf course as well. In addition, there is an... More

The ropes course at Shelby Farms is such a fantastic experience for "going ape" with your teen! My daughter and friends decided that a outdoor challenge for them could be a fun adventure- and it was!! Even thought the heat index was about 112, we somehow climbed up the ladders and balanced our way over tree tops to enjoy the... More

I would absolutely wait until the renovations are completed in September to go here. And take your car. We uber'd here and immediately regretted it. Visited the temporary visitor center and they gave us a map that's been xeroxed too many times so it was hard to read and not very well labelled. Told us we could go canoeing on... More

The kids loved the play ground and seeing the Buffalo. We wanted to do the paddle boats but they were closed Sunday mornings. A Ranger named answered our questions and was very polite. His name was Dave. Would go again if we are in the area again.
