About Us Events & Activities Conservation Education Greenway Get Involved


Dear Wolf River Conservancy partner:

If you have driven out to the north end of Island Drive in Harbor Town recently, you have seen the transformation of that area as we continue to build out the Wolf River Greenway trail. Although the trail will not officially open until late August or early September, the improvements to the area are quite visible from the road. New fencing, a 10’ wide concrete trail, new sod and native plantings are some of the improvements already in place.

Our Epping Way and J.F.K. Park segments, both located in Raleigh, are under construction and progressing very well.  They are expected to be open to the public later this year.  Upon completion in 2020, the entire Wolf River Greenway trail will provide a connected greenway and linear park from Downtown Memphis to the Germantown Greenway, ultimately continuing to Collierville and beyond.

The Wolf River Conservancy is very happy that the Wolf River Greenway trail is one of many exciting projects happening in the City of Memphis, transforming our city by helping to connect great new amenities such as the Big River Crossing, Shelby Farms Park and Overton Park.

We also look forward to the creation of new opportunities as yet unimagined in areas of the city that will become more accessible with the completion of the Wolf River Greenway.   Please continue to look for updates on the Wolf River Greenway trail during the next few months.

As always, a complete listing of all the Conservancy’s activities can be found on our website, Thank you for your continued support!

Keith Cole
Executive Director
