Shelby Bottoms Bridge Update
After months of planning and preparation Pedestrian Bridge #5 in Shelby Bottoms has been set in its new location.
Annual bush hogging is underway near the Shelby Bottoms observation deck and the newly open field make great hunting ground for American Kestrel and other birds of prey.
New Wayfinding Signs
Friends of Shelby partnered with Metro Parks to update the maps at trail intersections in Shelby Bottoms. In all, Parks Maintenance installed 25 new signs so visitors can find their way.
On January 12 neighbors and friends worked to beautify the area around the Shelby Community Center. Teams planted tree saplings, mulched, cleared trails and washed the playground. Thanks to everyone who participated
In 2020 Friends of Shelby will host a public volunteer event in the park every month. Sign up online to stay up to date on project dates and registration information.
