I absolutely loved this park. Sitting on a bench by the river looking at the beautiful bridges that span the river, listening to the birds, feeling the sun and breeze, this would make an awesome backyard. The park also has play fields, a merry go round, walking and biking paths, and a play water fountain feature.

Spent Easter service 4/5/2015 at Coolidge Park with family and Stuart Heights Baptist and My. Canaan Baptist churches. Great facilities at the park. The park was named for Mr Charles Coolidge Medal of Honor recipient. The land was used for the Naval Training center for many years before being converted to its original purpose, a park honoring Mr. Coolidge. A... More

We really enjoyed our visit to the park. We had heard a little of the carousel's history, so it was fun to go and see the carousel in action. In addition, it's a lovely park located right under the bridges and right on the riverbank. Great place to take a picnic lunch or just sit and drink a cup of... More

It has an outdoor amphitheater, a beautiful fountain area that children love to play in, an old fashioned carrousel, picnic tables and grills, ithas easy access to all of the northshore's dinning and shopping. You can also walk across the Walnut Street bridge, the longest... More

This is a great park for families and children. We didn't have ours with us, but we enjoyed walking all the paved paths and learning more about the area, as well as taking in the river side scenery.

This park reminds me of a place you see in paintings and on TV. It's beautiful. There use to be a large tree in the middle that looked like you could live in it. The river on one side and Fraiser with the nice shops on the other. With a huge open field and tucked between the Veteran's Bridge and... More

This is a great park with a play fountain and carousel to rest and watch your kids have fun on. There are great lunch and sandwich places nearby to get something to eat while to watch. Just walking here across the bridge from downtown is an experience in itself. Yet another great place to be while in Chattanooga.

If you are here with kids during hot weather, dress them in swimsuits. There is a huge fountain, complete with spewing animals and fun waterjets that is a favorite place to get wet. Also a vintage carousel with a large menagerie of carved animals, all expertly done by woodcarvers in the Chattanooga area. Lots of green space for kids to... More
