We stumbled upon the bridge and found it quite lovely. It was a great stroll across and back. Lots of benches. Tons of pedestrian activity from bikes to joggers to dog walkers to kids to romantics taking a stroll. We wished we could read the plaques better, they are quite warn and hard to read in the twilight.

Walking past all the varying forms of artwork and across the glass bridge over the highway, stopping for Ice Cream, pick a flavor to go with your chocolate or vanilla, to walking over the River on this pedestrian bridge was very enjoyable. The art work was stunning and the park across the river was great for pictures, an enjoyable experience.

We stayed at Chattanooga, and very much enjoyed the bicycles, that you can rent for six bucks a day, and are located all over the city. The bridge was great. Great exercise, with a park at one end, and ice cream store the other hand. LOL. This is a great free attraction.

The Walnut Street Bridge is one of the first places we return to when visiting one of our favorite cities. Whether a cold Fall day or a beautiful Spring day, sunrise or sunset, we've had wonderful walks across this bridge, taking in the lovely views of downtown Chattanooga and the Tennessee River. There are plenty of park benches to relax... More

A great way to see the river and surroundings ... shopping near Coolidge Park is nice too. Benches are provided if you need to rest.
