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 1 Layout

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.

Phase 2 Layout

Future phases of the master plan will be completed as funds becomes available.

Current Projects

Friends of Shelby Park is currently working on a project to complete the trail loop around Lake Sevier.
