Shelby Farms Park

There’s a never-ending list of gorgeous views around Shelby Farms Park.

Check out Hyde Lake from the outdoor patio of The Kitchen Bistro. After a few drinks, the sounds of water lapping at the pebbled shoreline near the patio steps will make you feel like you’re at the beach.

The popular Chickasaw Trail is a paved path that meanders through beautiful trees and creeks. Make sure you stop to take pictures of the buffalo!
