We thoroughly enjoyed our walk in the park and even more our carousel ride. The park was very clean and was absolutely beautiful when we were there. Will definitely return on future visits.

Coolidge Park is lovely and a great place for kids of all ages. We loved riding the Carousel and the attendant was fun to talk with. The splash park is also fun. There is a lovely walking path. It's close to many shops and restaurants. Our only complaint is that we wish it was even larger.

Was in town for Ironman Chattanooga. Stopped to watch the dog disc qualifying events. Love that the park is a non-smoking park. Shame on those who disregarded that and smoked anyway.

Open grassy areas to play, throw a ball, frisbee, fly a kite. Hand carved merry go round, water fountains for the kids to play in, walking paths connect to the walking bridge, bicycle, run, or skateboard. Lots of shops, and food options

We saw the park from the walking bridge. It looked like a fun place but there were so many things to see...we did not think we would have time. So glad we went on our way out of town. We had 2 small children so you can imagine how much the loved the Merry Go Round! The fountains were beautiful.... More

This was a fun time to watch a movie outdoors in the park. What a great atmosphere. It was a great family environment.

This park area is filled with life! Lots of recreational activity. People were playing football, riding bikes, paying soccer, listening to a concert, playing in the water pools, walking, and picnicking. The scenery is fantastic!

This is a must fir our family. Every time we visit Chattanooga our kids insist we come and play in the fountains. There are snow cones and ice cream parlors in the area too!
