If you're ever in Chattanooga, the Walnut Street Bridge is a must see. But better yet, walk it! It is the longest pedestrian bridge in the US and links the hip NorthShore/Frazier Ave. & Coolidge Park (great restaurants - Terra Nostra, Clumpies Ice Cream) and unique shops and galleries with the South Shore river front - TN Aquarium and the...

After living in and around the Chattanooga since 1969, I finally walked across the Walnut Street Bridge in January of 2016. I was struck with a spectacular view of the city in a way I never seen it before. One can really get a better idea of just exactly why Chattanooga = River City from this vantage point. The only...

This is a nice walk across the river. It takes you from the downtown area to the North Shore of Chattanooga. It is very relaxing and peaceful.

My family and I walk across the river on this bridge quite often, and it's always a delight. Sometimes we eat at a restaurant on the north shore before walking back; sometimes we treat ourselves to ice cream at the little shop on the south side. The view, the breeze, the relaxing walk...it's all good.

Walked across to Coolidge Park with my two very young sons. It was a nice way to get outside and enjoy the sites. Would love to jog here!

The Walnut Street Bridge is a beautiful link from the downtown side of Chattanooga to the North Shore with its quaint stores and boutiques, and restaurants. Coolidge Park with its carousel featuring carved horses, and the fountain which is a refreshing play area for kids in the summer time, also is a great place to just hang out and play... More

This bridge is well worth the walk getting to the family friendly park on the other side of the river. We made the trek after spending some time downtown at the aquarium. Great sites and a fun way to get some good exercise.
