THE GREAT OUTDOORS
Memphians live in one of the largest urban areas in the country and have access to just as much hunting, camping, cycling, kayaking, canoeing, nature trails as those who live outside of the city. Why? Because Memphis is home to the 2nd-largest county park in the United States, a greenline 10.8 miles long, three rivers winding through or around the city, and over 60+ miles of bike lanes with more on the way. Shelby Farms is a 4,500 acre public park home to the recently expanded 80 acre Hyde Lake, brand new visitors center and event space, and activities for every interest and age ranging from boating to disc golf to horseback riding to mountain biking to a 100 acre dog park.
