Coolidge Park has an indoor carousel that you can ride for $1. It also has some walking paths as well as an in-ground fountain to beat the summer heat. Conveniently located on the Northshore with interesting restaurants and shops nearby!

This is a great park on Chattanooga waterfront. Beautiful setting for a picnic and kids can cool off in the very neat fountains. From here you can take a walk along the river, see the riverboat hotel, or walk across the adjacent walking bridge. Plenty of room to run around and play. Accessible bathrooms, parking is plentiful and $1 and... More

We went mid August and it was pretty hot. After exploring the city a little bit we decided to head to Coolidge park to cool off. My kids had so much fun. They were splashing around and keeping cool. We brought a picnic with us and my husband and I sat in the shade and found it very pleasant. They... More

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.

It was raining a little while we were there and we had fun anyway. The fountain is really nice. 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

Coolidge Park is this wonderful park across the bridge from downtown Chattanooga. It is my daughter's favorite part of going to Chattanooga. 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
