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.

Great place to relax and enjoy the scenery. Walk the bridge to get from downtown. The carousel is a must!

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.

Our family drove over to this park to ride the carousel, which our preschooler LOVED. We also happened upon the large splash fountain and let our son play in it with his clothes on. Next time we will definitely bring a bathing suit. Although it was somewhat crowded at the water area, we had no trouble playing. It is a... More

When visiting Chattanooga in the summer, especially with children, you'll want to make sure you make a stop at Coolidge Park. Be sure to bring a change of clothes for the kids and maybe even yourself! They have the fountains on for playing in during the warmer months and their is also a carousel and plenty of grass to play... More

Super place to walk, cycle, grassy area for "basking", game playing, etc. The park is relatively small but none the less, a very nice green space.
