It's a very nice bridge, but a bridge. Good for activities such as moving across bodies of water, or simply looking at because you like bridges. It gets the job done.

Took a carload of kids from our neighborhood to the 4th of July fireworks and enjoyed the sight from the bridge. Stick to the south shore half of the bridge, and you can see the fireworks twice--in the air and reflected in the river. Terrific asset to the city: a celebration of God's great outdoors--water, air, mountain views all around--and... More

Lovely place for a stroll, great shops at one end, the river, And Coolidge Park the other end is at Bluff View. Very beautiful with benches along the way. You could spend the whole day in an area that is 1/4 mile and leave with a smile

I wouldn't come to Chattanooga just to see the Walnut Street Bridge (unless you are a bridge-ophile); however; if you are in the city it is a must on a good day. I grew up on Signal and at time the city had little to nothing to offer. City planners have really done a nice job reinventing downtown and the... More

Loved walking this bridge and the artsy/trendy area surrounding it. We will do it again one day when whenever we return.

This is one of the most beautiful bridges that I have encountered. I very much enjoyed the view of the river, pedestrians with baby strollers, and dogs on leashes. Okay, call me a wimp, as I am an acrophobic.. I passed half way over the glass bridge, and had to turn back before reaching the actual Walnut Street pedestrian bridge.... More

You'll find me and the corgi of Chattanooga there at least once a week. The bridge is an amazing place to see the city. It connects the north chat to down town. If you come here check it out.

I have enjoyed this bridge for years. Running, biking the Riverwalk, coffee stops, lunch breaks, walking with friends, dinner dates with my husband downtown, Coolidge park and the fountains with kids, Creative Discovery Museum and Chattanooga aquarium with my family, fireworks at the Riverbend festival... All these fond memories of fun experiences began with walking on the Walnut Street bridge.

I liked the bridge... Haven't seen too many pedestrian bridges in the US... You can see people of all ages... You can walk, exercise or just sit on one of the benches and observe... The scenery is cool too... The river looks gorgeous..
