We visited there with our kids 24,22,18 and my 80 yr old parents and everyone left with a smile! We all loved the carousel. My mother is in a wheelchair and the staff went out of their way to help us get her on the carousel (and take pictures) without feeling rushed. I've never seen her face light up so... More

The only reason I give this park a 4 instead of 5 is because there are no dogs allowed. My family and I enjoy visiting frequently though. Play soccer, football, ride bikes... All the kids love playing in the water fountains too.

This park looks great. There are far too many questionable people who are allowed to just hang around on the North Shore side of the Walking Bridge and down into Coolidge Park. Again teenagers and such can really ruin the experience in being rude and crude. Early mornings are best when park isn't as crowded.

Coolidge Park is a fun park for all ages. The kids will love the water features. 'Kids' of all ages will love the carousel. Teens will enjoy the open space for biking, skating, passing frisbee, etc. Parents will love the close proximity of eateries, shopping, and parking. Coolidge Park is just an all around fun park to visit.

We love this park and the Walnut Street pedestrian bridge above it.Our children never tire of the old fashioned carousel. A lovely, economical attraction for a family when it's not too crowded. Go late in the evening for the best time.

Took the family (with four kids) to the park on a whim on a hot Saturday afternoon. We were all pleasantly surprised. The kids loved the water - I had to drag them out LOL Everyone around was very nice and friendly. I didn't have a chance to explore the Carousel or the waterfront but hope to on our next... More

We didn't know anything about Chattanooga and were delighted to find this little gem. We walked across the Walnut Street Bridge and looked down to see this park. On our way back across the bridge, we decided to take our toddler son to the water park. He loved all the animals that would unexpectedly spray water at different times. It... More

We had traversed the Walnut Street Pedestrian Bridge and we arrived at Coolidge Park. From the bridge we could see the interactive water fountain with animals squirting water and a few kids running through. The 100-year old restored antique carousel was not opened yet, but we could look through the windows. Carousel summer hours are: Mon – Sat 9 AM... More

Every time we come to Chattanooga for a visit we have to walk across the bridge to this wonderful park. There is a beautiful indoor carousel and a fun outdoor sprinkler / splash park with neat animal statues. Plus there is a beautiful view of the river and downtown Chattanooga. There always seems to be some activity taking place in... More

We came here with our four grandchildren and they had a wonderful time running under the water fountains and climbing on the animal sculptures. There's stone steps in a shady area for the parents to sit on and watch the kids. There's plenty of grassy areas, too, for the kids to run around on.
