the sculpture garden is an absolute treasure. Situated on the bluff overlooking the river, the views and landscaping are beautiful in and of themselves. Add to that gorgeous works of art, and this regrettably small park is still a Chattanooga highlight!

We've Been Going Here Since My Girls, 27 and 30 now, Were Little! When they were small I would ask them to guess how much each piece of art cost, most are for sale...they loved that game. Great location and a fun visit! Now we take my grandson to the gallery.

Interesting little sculpture garden tucked into the side of one of the cliffs. Looks like maybe the sculptures change every so often so could be good to visit more than once. Small garden-tuoe area that you can walk through and sit and observe the sculptures. Small map and write up at the entrance helps quite a bit. Also lists other... More

I love good sculpture and this place had some great stuff! The gallery itself was closed, but the sculpture garden was so good, we didn't even care. You just kind of walk around this beautiful outdoor gallery right on the edge of the river in the very beautiful Bluff View Art District. The sculpture garden is free and we were... More

Located in the Bluff View Art District of Chattanooga, River Gallery is where you can buy works of art done in a variety of mediums. Most prices are in the hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars, but there are also items for less than $100. Well worth visiting, but be aware it is a large building with many rooms, and the...

I have been to Chattanooga several times the past 2 years and always find time to spend time in this park. There is no cost. Park hours are limited . There are just a few benches for sitting. The sculptures are fantastic. After spending time at the museum or aquarium, this is a great place to find peace, quiet and... More

A lovely outdoor sculpture garden, my favorite item was the Soleri Bell Assembly by Paulo Soleri. It was a little warm when we went so be sure to bring some water to drink while walking. Wonderful area to visit.

Had to cancel much anticipated visit to the falls and look out mountain due to recent rains and boulders falling. Maybe a different season would make a better time for this
