Shelby Parks and Recreation : friends of the parks


2015 Membership Drive Now Underway. Please join other individuals, companies and organizations today to help make your Parks a better place.

In the fall of 2010, a group of interested citizens met with City of Shelby officials to discuss the feasibility of forming a group to financially support Shelby Parks and Recreation programs and facilities outside of the normal operating budget of the City. 

Because of traditions and the importance of the parks to our community, they decided to create the "Friends Of The Parks" organization with the full support of Mayor and Shelby City Council.
