Shelby Park Planning
Shelby Park Master Plan
In 2009, Metro Parks -- along with hundreds of neighbors, stakeholders and interest groups -- embarked on a first-ever master planning process for Shelby Park.
Phase One of the master plan was completed in 2012 and included the event lawn, a second Old Timers baseball field, pedestrian improvements, lighting and landscaping. The Metro Arts Commission integrated “Reflection”, by artist Lawrence Argent, into the Phase One landscape.
Phase Two was completed in 2014 and included the greenway trail from Lillian Avenue to Shelby Bottoms, and other improvements to circulation, parking, and landscaping.
Future phases of the master plan will be completed as funds becomes available.
Friends of Shelby Park is currently working on a project to complete the trail loop around Lake Sevier.
