Get outside and get moving with family fun galore!
If rivers, bikes and golf are your thing, Shelby County has just the ticket for you and your family. Spend a Saturday boating down the Big Blue River - or the Flat Rock River to the South. Gear up and bring the bikes for a day-long ride through the downtown Shelbyville historic district, or take our motor/bike trails through the country.
Practice your putting skills at one of our three golf courses. Take a cue from the locals and head to Meridian Park Aquatic Center for a refreshing day of fun. Blue River Memorial Park features baseball and softball fun - as well as soccer fields to kick the ball around a bit.
