Coolidge Park has lots of space right on the Tennessee River. It has a vintage carousel, open space, frequent concerts, green space, and is the gateway to the walking bridge that crosses the river into the arts district. Parking is sometimes tight (lots of good restaurants and stores nearby) but it is well worth the time to go.

Chattanooga has created a great park to be enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. The famous merry-go-round has all hand carved, in Chattanooga, animals. It is fun for all ages. The city holds several events in the park throughout the year. It is a great place to take children and turn them loose to play freely.

After walking around downtown, this is a great place for the kids to get their energy out. Whether running in the grass, playing in the fountain or riding the carousel, loads of fun.

Great place to walk the dog or play frisbee. It is an awesome place to hangout! Take a drink during the hot summer, and the food truck weekends are awesome!!

My kids could have stayed here for hours! Unfortunately, I was not prepared and didn't have swim diapers for my youngest. I had no idea they would get soaking wet. So we played for a little while and I kept changing diapers when they were soaked, but I soon ran out of diapers and we had to leave. All three... More

I have been to the 3 top attractions in Chattanooga multiple times (ruby falls, inclined rail, lookout mountain). So this time I wanted to visit something new. I decided on the Coolidge park based on the reviews. My family enjoyed the visit thoroughly. Our preschooler enjoyed the splash and the carousel. It was very pleasant to look at the high... More

We spent a few hours at Coolidge Park during our family weekend getaway and we loved it here. If it was a bit cooler, we would have stayed longer. We spent an hour or two at the fountain, which was great for our toddler. Some of the water features weren't working, or were intermittent but we still had a great... More
