Once a car bridge, the bridge is now the longest pedestrian bridge in the country. In December it's a great place to view the boat parade. In the evening it is a great place to walk with your date, or for meditation and for just relaxing to watch the flow of the Tennessee river. At one end of the bridge... More

If you walk the bridge, you get to go to the other side...like the chicken. If you want a good walk, fine.

On a beautiful day in Chattanooga there is nothing like taking a walk across the Walnut Street Bridge over to Frazier Avenue for a bite to eat or Coolidge Park.

I love how the bridge on any given day is a snapshot of the people in and around Chattanooga - it's a great way to immerse yourself in the culture of the city. Stroll, hike, bike, walk the dog, go at sunset and watch the fading light dance across the water with great views of both the north and south... More

Great place to take a stroll while visiting downtown Chatt or ride a bike! Very unique. Special events are often held on the bridge such as wine over water.

Where in the world can you find a bridge that is scenery, entertaining and burn calorie? I bet you will find the Walnut street Bridge can give you all. When you walk on this bridge across the Tennessee River, you feel safe, surreal and peace; you can have this type of ‘pause’ in your life, where there is no rush,... More

A walk along the Walnut Street Bridge is a wonderful experience day or night, spring, summer, fall, or winter. There is so much to see and do along the riverfront. The bridge is an avenue to everything on both sides of the river! On one side there is Coolidge Park with its carousel, water park, picnic tables, and play area.... More

Great way to see the river and surrounding mountains. At the end is the Northside which is quickly becoming a destination on it's own.

We took a leisurely stroll across the Walnut Street Bridge after visiting the aquarium. Had a wonderful spring day sunny in the 70's and visited the park across the river. I loved the wooden plank bridge and nice views of the surrounding area. Lots of runners and dog walkers along with other walkers. The only issue I had was there... More
