We love biking around Coolidge Park or walking and taking a picnic along. There was an unusual bicycle display there that were being photographed. The new Cashew vegan restaurant down there is a nice addition to eateries in the area. Watching people climb the rock wall is fun too.

Make sure you ride the indoor carousel before letting your kids play in the fountain as they can't ride when wet. The carousel is only $1 a ride- much cheaper than most places. They have a variety of animals if you... More

It has an old-tyme Merry Go Round with hand carved animals. It is in an enclosed pavilion so it can be used in bad weather. The carousel is the only place where there is a charge-I think it... More

Coolidge Park has the softest grass that I have ever walked on !! It was like walking on carpet - the park is well maintained by grounds staff. Parking is free on Sundays - at least some of it is. There is an abundant amount of space to walk around in and enjoy even if there are others around !!... More

Coolidge Park is a well maintained park with a functional Merry Go Round, water fountain that the kids can play in and venue site for events such as free movie nights, music program etc. Has picnic areas, a beautiful view of the TN river and play ground equipment for the kids. One of the jewels of the downtown water front.

Enjoy walking along the Tennessee River, play in the water fountains, ride the carousel, eat a picnic lunch, or enjoy laying in the grass and reading a book.

This North Shore river park is stocked with space and activities for children to play! The walking/running track is long and lovely. There are beautiful views and plenty of space for lounging! We only wish we had thought to bring our picnic blanket!
