This is a must see when in Chattanooga. Beautiful, unique art and in a great area in Arts bluff district. I was amazed that they had such a wonderful selection of different forms of art, from glass, clay, paintings, metal sculptures, etc.

There is some really great art in the garden with well known artists. This was a nice walk on a sunny day!

This zoo gets better every time we visit. What it lacks in size it more than makes up for in quality. It is run by people that care and it shows! The animals are well cared for and the enclosures nicely done. Make sure you bring your camera as there are lots of great photo opportunities.

This is a wonderful place to see artistic things from glass blown ornaments, wind chimes, jewelry as well as more traditional artwork. And the staff is warm, friendly and welcoming!

the art in the garden was very unique (extremely odd) but it was a nice place to visit especially for someone who is into art.

This is a beautiful little garden in a very idyllic space on the bluff over the water. One of those places that is better for just happening upon. I wouldn't think I'd be interested in a sculpture garden but these were good, interesting...sculptures that you would actually sit with for a minute and be curious about. I also liked it's... More

One of my artists, Russell Whiting, also shows at River Gallery, and his work is beautifully displayed in this garden. Other sculptures are well placed and thoughtfully selected.

This is a wonderful garden. Make sure to see Icarus flying over the garden. My favorite sculpture is located there (The Prodigal Son), I have two pictures of it in my home.

The sculpture garden, just a short walk from the Hunter Museum, is a fun place with a good view of the Tennessee river. Mostly modern art, but a lot of cool things to see with ample benches and shade. It's a neat stopover on the way from one attraction (say from the Bluff View Bakery to the Hunter museum or... More

What a wonderful way to spend a few minutes away from the crowds! The sculpture garden overlooks the Tennessee River right on the bluff and the sculptures themselves are mostly modern. As you enter there is a box of paper information sheets for self-guided tours and there are benches for resting or pondering. My favorite sculpture is The Prodigal Son... More
