We passed through when we were going to market street bridge. You would see people having a nice picinic and a man playing the guitar and just everyone having a great time.

Our family drove over to this park to ride the carousel, which our preschooler LOVED. We also happened upon the large splash fountain and let our son play in it with his clothes on.

When visiting Chattanooga in the summer, especially with children, you'll want to make sure you make a stop at Coolidge Park.

We thoroughly enjoyed our walk in the park and even more our carousel ride. The park was very clean and was absolutely beautiful when we were there. Will definitely return on future visits.

Coolidge Park is lovely and a great place for kids of all ages. We loved riding the Carousel and the attendant was fun to talk with. The splash park is also fun. There is a lovely walking path. It's close to many shops and restaurants. Our only complaint is that we wish it was even larger.

Was in town for Ironman Chattanooga. Stopped to watch the dog disc qualifying events. Love that the park is a non-smoking park. Shame on those who disregarded that and smoked anyway.
