Lots to do. Great lawn for games, fountain and splash pad for kids, "old fashioned" carousal for all ages, and plenty of paths to stroll along the river.

Coolidge Park offers a ton of space to do just about any activity. With some slick views of the Tennessee River, and Walnut St bridge to boot. Football? Frisbee? There's no better place. It's well lit at night, so there's no cause to feel unsafe....More

Collide Park is perfect. You can ride the carousel, have a picnic, splash in the fountain, or just chill out. There are lots of little eateries around to pick up lunch at so you can enjoy that in the park.

Plain grass park and I had to pay to park my car just to be chased away by a guard saying that digs were not welcome. I'm never coming back to Chattanooga this is terrible for tourism. On the other hand, if you go across...More

Super nice park right on the Tennessee River. Lots of green space, water fountain to play in, and an antique carousel.

Coolidge Park is free! There is a really great merry-go-round that costs $1 per person, but the rest of the park is free. There are some great shops and places to eat close to the park, too.
