Our Mission


Friends of Shelby Park is dedicated to the preservation, protection and enhancement of historic Shelby Park and Shelby Bottoms

We are working to create a world-class park, by restoring and preserving its historic importance, protecting its environmental resources and providing amenities for active and passive recreation for all the people who use the park. The parks are a sanctuary of greenspace in the heart of Nashville. In working to preserve and enhance the park, Friends of Shelby serves neighborhood and city residents, local businesses, schools, and other organizations, as well as all park visitors from both inside and outside the community.
