On a day in Chattanooga with beautiful weather, you'll find everyone in Coolidge Park, even locals. There's tons of open grassy space for games of ultimate frisbee, soccer, etc. and even fun for younger kids with a big fountain area they can play in and a beautiful carousel. You can walk right along the river and see across into beautiful... More

Chattanooga has done an amazing job with their riverfront and Coolidge Park is a wonderful place to spend an afternoon. There is plenty of space to run around, and the water fountains and carousel for the kids. Along the river there are many benches and picnic tables, so you can stop and enjoy the view. I love how they've mixed... More

Such a great use of green space! There is always room to play and people are friendly! Always clean and safe. Best part of Chattanooga and the North Shore area for sure!

The park has a great fountain and benches to relax, but the main attraction is the working Carousel. The town has done a great job of renovating and fixing it up.

Visited Coolidge Park to take my daughter to the Carousel! Both were amazing. We highly enjoyed ourselves! The carousel was only $1 per ride and children under 2 ride free with the purchase of an adult ticket. Will definitely return!

We love to visit Coolidge Park when we are in Chattanooga. The kids have a blast on the carousel. It was too cold to go in the water at the fountains, but it was still fun for the kids to see. We also enjoyed walking by the river and watching the boats.
