Walking bridge

A great idea to repurpose a bridge. The views are great and it connects Coolidge park to river walk and the art district.

Walking across this Chattanooga landmark is always fun! There are locals and tourists, babies, kids up to older adults. People seem to be happy to be out enjoying the beauty of Chattanooga and the River, so most are friendly. It's an easy stroll...

It was really fun to walk across the bridge with only people and a few bikes. Beautiful area and views. Takes you from a great downtown area to another one across the bridge.

Everybody should walk a bridge in their life, and this is a great one to cross! This bridge provides great views of the mountains, the city, and the Tennessee River.

My husband and I walked across the Walnut Street Bridge recently while visiting Chattanooga. The city of Chattanooga should be commended for converting this bridge into a pedestrian walkway, rather than tearing it down when the new automobile and truck traffic bridge was opened. Walnut Street Bridge has been redesigned to accommodate walkers, joggers, bicyclists, and even baby strollers. There... More

We went around 6pm and were able to take our time on the bridge. The bridge isn't that long, you can walk from end to end within 10 minutes. I'd advise you to bring something to drink just because it is a 'walking' activity. You need to keep hydrated. It's well worth the walk though. You can see all the... More

It is a sweet experience to walk across the river on this bridge near sunset, and finish up with an icecream before heading back to your hotel.

Beautiful views of the museums and river. Benches are lined up along the bridge which gives the opportunity to sit and enjoy the views.

The Walking Bridge has the best views of Chattanooga and the water front. It a great walk during the day or the night (when the lights are on). It's also a great place to watch the Dragon Boat races as well as the Regatta that is held here the first weekend in November. One end is by Coolidge park, the... More

The bridge was a fun walk. I enjoyed the area and the downtown riverfront. I got dinner after walking and looking around. It is something worth doing if you are down there for the museums or riverfront.
