Walked across this bridge. We did not go to the park but enjoyed the views from the bridge. Was a little disappointed that other than the park we found nothing to do on that side of the river.

We had some friends recommend this activity. So we got some ice cream at Clumpy's and then walked across the bridge at sunset. It was pretty romantic and there were lots of stunning views.

Walk from one side of Chattanooga, from the northside to the southside. A leisurely walk takes about 20 minutes and is great with your dog.

I had the best time walking across this bridge and back and the views were breathtaking. The weather couldn't have been more beautiful (sunny, warm and no humidity). I stopped in at a German restaurant at the far end of the bridge for lunch and had a delicious bratwurst sandwich.

Best place to be after an amazing day in Downtown Chattanooga! Beautiful view of the Tennessee River! Best if visited in the spring or summer.

This is a great spot to go running, biking, or walking and get some great views. I came with 3 younger kids and they loved running back and forth across the bridge and looking out over the river. It may only take 20 minutes of your time walking back and forth, but its worth it.

It is a nice walk across the river. The bridge is plenty wide enough for walkers, joggers, and bicyclists. The bridge is well maintained and pretty.

Chattanooga building this pedestrian bridge was such a fantastic idea. It's great to walk, run, or bike across. There are benches all over the place if you want to stop and enjoy the view, which is amazing on both sides.

I love that the city had made a bridge for pedestrians, runners, cyclists and people who just want to hang out and enjoy the beautiful views. The city is beautiful and it's nice to be able to use this bridge to cross to the north shore.
