About Shelby Farms Park Conservancy

Shelby Farms Park lies in the heart of Shelby County in Memphis, Tennessee on 4,500 acres of green space and 6.5 miles of urban trail. It’s a community treasure, unrivaled in size and potential anywhere else in the United States.

Shelby Farms Park Conservancy (the Conservancy) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that manages and operates Shelby Farms Park and the Shelby Farms Greenline in a public-private partnership with Shelby County Government. That means the land that comprises the Park and Greenline remains publicly owned, and the Conservancy is responsible for daily management, fundraising to meet operations budget needs, setting the vision for the Park’s future and stewarding its unique natural resources.
