This is a great place e to take the grandkids. On hot days they can play in the fountains or ride on the carousel. It is close to good eating places.

Super nice park right on the Tennessee River. Lots of green space, water fountain to play in, and an antique carousel.

Coolidge Park is a charming green area fronting the north shore of the Tennessee River, and features fountains, a large lawn, the carousel, access to the riverwalk, etc.

I love how Chattanooga is carving out a place for families and young couples in the downtown area, especially around the river. This park, overlooked by both bridges, has walking paths, places to sit and enjoy the park, a carousel, a fountain, which had several little ones playing in it, art sculptures, and plenty of trees, grass, and plants.

Poorly organized when trying to obtain information to set up a birthday party for our 9yr old. The lady told us we had space reserved only to come back and find someone else there. Information was hard to come by. Coolidge is beautiful and great when not slam packed full of folks. The city has outgrown the park.

We arrived in Chattanooga around 3PM and felt we wouldn't have enough time to enjoy the aquarium or Discovery Center with our kids. We decided to go to Coolidge Park. That ended up being a GREAT decision. My grabbed the kids swimsuits and spent over an hour playing in the splash pad. Our kids are 5 and 2 and this... More

We came for labor day weekend. Walked across walnut street bridge to Coolidge. Beautiful! Tons of room for the kids to run around. Water fountains to refill water bottles and then just normal water fountains. There is a fountain that the kids can run and play in too.

This is the perfect spot to enjoy a day with the family. The kids had a great time playing in the splash area. Perfect for a nice walk or throw around a ball. It's an excellent location, close to some nice places to eat, and close to the bridge. We attended the Movies in the Park event, which was incredible.

We spent an afternoon in Chattanooga while vacationing in the area and enjoyed a leisurely walk through Coolidge Park. The grounds are well maintained and the river view is lovely. There were lots of folks there, yet the park is laid out in a manner that doesn't make it feel crowded.

An amazing park on the river, across from the aquarium! Antique Carousel and water fountains are available! Great coffee houses and restaurants and the pedestrian bridge to the area is great too! Loved it and highly recommend it!!! Chattanooga is so diverse and unique that you can't go wrong here! The art district is close and often Muti Cultured things... More
