One of the finest examples of the Phoenix wrought-iron truss bridges that were build between 1884 and 1923.

We really enjoyed this. Great for families, too. We were there right before dark and was able to watch the lights come on all over town. If you drive around some you can find a free place to park, otherwise it's $5. We were told...More

Simply a wonderful place to walk, exercise, get fresh air, and enjoy the beautiful Tennessee River. High recommend, although finding a place to park can be a challenge.

The history of this bridge is interesting. Some of the stories that can be told including ghost stories. It also makes for a very nice walk across the river where you can find more things to do.

We went on this bridge during midnight and still it was very lively. We took our slippers out and walked on this bridge. It was fun seeing city and river from this bridge during midnight.

It was a beautiful day in Chattanooga and for a walk across the Walnut Street bridge with the family. Beautiful view and walking distance to downtown and Coolidge Park. Would recommend.

No motor vehicles, and nicely renovated so you can join all the locals who stroll, jog and bicycle across the world's longest pedestrian bridge. Wonderful wooden floor for ambience. Well lighted at night. Terrific views of the Tennessee River, riverboats, waterfront gathering venues, etc. Both...More

The walk across this bridge has a great view and is a good way to get in some nice pictures of the river on either side and the city behind you. It'll be hard going back to my regular morning walk with the same dull...More

We walked across one bridge and the back over via the Walnut Street Bridge. Fun! Plenty of room for cyclists, walkers and runners. And what a view!

Pedestrian walk it was hot but not very busy. The view is the best. Just a short walk from TN Aquarium. Well worth a look if you are near it.

Hit it at sunset! Eat nearby and don't miss the statue garden below the Bluff View Inn. Ice Cream at the Ice Cream Show.

I am looking at getting married in October on the Walnut Street Bridge and was just look for advice from others who have gotten married on the bridge. The Parks & Recreation Department is telling me that we can only use one lane of the bridge, which doesn't seem like it will leave a lot of room for chairs and things for our guests. I have seen pictures of weddings on the bridge and it looks like they are using the whole center part of the bridge but that is not what they are telling me I can do so just looking for advice from others who have gotten married there. Thanks.

I didn't get married there but the bridge is pretty wide. I think you'd just need to find out the dimensions of it and go from there.
Do they have Christmas lights on this bridge this time of year?
