Custom Park Tours

Guided walking tours at Shelby Farms Park will introduce visitors to the history of the Park and to the plans and amenities that are shaping the Park's bright future. Interpretive, docent-led programs can customized to accommodate anyone--from high activity to limited mobility groups. Give us a call at (901) 222-PARK to learn more about options for your group.


Arboretum Tours

See, touch and learn about 38 species of native trees that call the Park "home." Located at the juncture between the Chickasaw and Greenline Connector Trails, the Arboretum provides an opportunity to see, touch, observe and learn about a wide variety of tree species. Guided tours, led by SFPC's Horticulture Ranger, are offered, or you can explore on your own using this pamphlet designed by a local Boy Scout.

Groups of 10 or more: $25 suggested donation (proceeds help keep the Park clean, green + safe)
