Great place to unwind with the kids for a picnic while in Chattanooga. We parked on the opposite side by the aquarium and then walked across the pedestrian bridge to get to the park. A good free activity.

Coolidge park is fantastic! There's a huge area to picnic, a beautiful merry-go-round, awesome water fountains and water sprays for the kids to play in, in the summer and they have several events all year! Close to everything in town and right on the river. Such a beautiful park!

No playground equipment per se, but a wonderful public fountain that the kids can play in (bring bathing suits), and a great old restored carousel that is cheap to ride and plenty of fun for young and old. Great views of the riverfront from the north shore. Parking is free on Sundays. Check out the stores and coffee shops on... More

This park has a beautiful merry go round with all handcarved animals, each crafted by a different artist. Rides are only $1 each. They also has an area with a number of large, concrete animal sculptures (can be climbed on) that surround water fountains for kids to play in. It was too cool for us in April to be in... More

We walked across the Market Street Bridge to Coolidge Park after visiting the aquarium. It's a very nice park that has an old school merry-go-round that the kids enjoyed. You can't beat the price of $1.00 a ride, plus they had rocking chairs to sit in while you wait, fans to keep you cool, and I saw 2 officers while... More

Not only do you get to ride the carousel for a dollar, but the water park is so pretty, and walking along the river has alot of history posted on signs to read. It's such a pretty place and we enjoyed it tremondously while there. The history of the carousel is also really neat to hear and see.

We stopped here for an afternoon chillax in the sun. Kids loved splashing in the fountain and it right on the river so the scenery is really enjoyable

Coolidge Park is what a park should be, fun, well maintained, with good amenities. The view of the Tennessee River is beautiful. The splash fountains are always fun for children, and so it the giant indoor carousel. The park is surrounded by several unique restaurants, shops, and convenient sparking restrooms.
