Current Entrance to Shelby Farms Park Set to Close Permanently

Posted By on Tue, Jul 15, 2014 at 4:02 PM


On Monday, July 21st, the Pine Lake Drive entrance to Shelby Farms Park will close forever as part of the park's master plan. Park users will instead enter Shelby Farms through a new entrance a quarter mile north of the old one, off Farm Road.

On the same day, construction of the expanded Patriot Lake will begin, so construction equipment will occasionally be crossing Farm Road. That may affect traffic for about six months, according to Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell's office. Although access from Farm Road will remain open throughout construction, drivers may expect delays.
