Favorite Place: Wolf River Pedestrian Bridge

The next time you need some peace and quiet, head to the new pedestrian bridge over the Wolf River. The wood and steel bridge pedestrian bridge connects Shelby Farms and the Greenline to the Wolf River greenway.

The views of the river are incredible, and it's pretty nice that you can't see or hear the traffic on the Walnut Grove bridge from the bridge.

If you're looking for somewhere to hide on your lunch break (or stage an impromptu woodland lecture) there are benches and tables on the river banks at the northern end of the bridge.

The bridge is accessible via the Humphreys Boulevard access point to the Wolf River Greenway. There is a parking area nearby. If you're at Shelby Farms, you can also crossing Walnut Grove at the light at Farm Road and follow the trail. Just be careful and use the pedestrian walk signals—this is one of the busiest intersections in East Memphis. The paved trail also connects to the Greenline that runs from Shelby Farms to Midtown.
