It’s easy to take the amenities that are close by us for granted. One of those great amenities is Shelby Farms Park. At five times the size of New York’s Central Park, this urban oasis covers 4500 acres and offers outdoors enthusiasts hiking and biking trails, paddle boats and fishing, trail rides and horseback lessons, and a shooting range. The Wolf River Greenway connects to Shelby Farms Greenline, creating a path from far east Memphis all the way to Midtown. The park continues to make enhancements, like the current project to expand its centerpiece, Patriot Lake. Learn more about Shelby Farms Park here, and then if you think you don’t have anything great to do this weekend, TAKE A HIKE!
