Coolidge Park is at the North end of the Walnut Street bridge. The park has numerous innovative attractions like hanging musical metal objects with strikers. There is a large elaborate carousel for the children as well as a small water park with concrete animals. The small children really love the water sprays. Adults throw Frisbee on the large grassy lawn... More

This is a great place for couples as well as families. There's plenty of places to sit and relax, a water spot that the kids can play in and a carousel. There's even a rock climbing wall! Pets are aloud as long as they are on a leach, too.

Both this and the pedestrian bridge are good places to visit. The park also connects with the Riverfront green-way. There are usually many vendors that adjoin with Coolidge Park. This park also hosts many festivals during the year. The only drawback is the park is not pet-friendly.

I wanted to see some of the sites around Chattanooga so I drove through downtown. I parked and walked around this park taking pictures of the amazing views of the water and area. There are trails to walk and plenty of places to sit and view the water. I would recommend going here.

Coolidge Park is on the North Shore of the Tennessee River, across the river from downtown Chattanooga. It is a large park, very clean and well manicured. There is much to do here, open spaces, a water park for the young ones to play in, walk beside the river, even musical instruments to play on. There are clean rest room... More

Lovely park on North Shore. Great food and activities. Located below the Walnut Street Bridge. Clean bathrooms. Great for families or a quiet walk alone.

Every where you look, you see smiling people playing and eating with family and friends. It is clean, lot's of grass. The splash park was so fun for our kids. They spent as long as we let them on two different times. The carousel was fun and only $1! There are lots of fun restaurants around the park. Be prepared... More
