Shelby Park has been a part of the lives of East Nashvillians for more than 100 years. The park was named for John Shelby. Shelby owned a large parcel of land in what is now East Nashville. The property that Shelby owned and lived on was bound by the Cumberland River on the south and west, roughly Main Street to the north and South Eighth Street to the east. Shelby did not own the land now occupied by Shelby Park.
