This park is awesome! The splash area was a HUGE hit with our kids. They didn’t want to leave it. That is until they saw the carousel. Then they couldn’t wait to dry off and go Inside to ride the horses. They kept trying to...More

A must see while in Chattanooga. A beautiful park on the North Side with great water play area and a very cool carousel(costs $1). A large grassy area that can host outside concerts I am sure.

A perfect place to take kids to play in the fountains and ride the carousel.I always park by the aquarium and walk across the bridge to the park. It's always very lively.

Coolidge Park is free! There is a really great merry-go-round that costs $1 per person, but the rest of the park is free. There are some great shops and places to eat close to the park, too.
