Join the USGBC Tennessee Memphis Branch for the first in our Behind-the-Scene Green Tour series for a tour of The Woodland Discovery Playground at Shelby Farms, one of the first Sustainable SITES projects in the world.

Certified in 2011, this four-acre playground accomplishes two goals: woodland restoration and a blending of play space and nature for the health and development benefits of children.

Not only is Woodland Discovery Playground a model for sustainable landscape design, it is a five-star Yelp rated playground that was featured in a Mental Floss article: 16 of the coolest playgrounds in the world in June 2016, and Inspired Playgrounds Around the World in the South China Morning Star in June 2015.

Join us for a behind the scenes look at what makes this playground unique, as we have a guided tour by Shelby Farms staff, and the project's general contractor.

Sponsorship: Please contact Holly Baird at or 615.933.8633, if you're interested in being a sponsor of this event; our Behind-the-Scene Green Tour series; and/or a future Green Tour in the Memphis region.
