I've been to Point Park several times. Unless it is bad weather, the view will never disappoint. Don't think you have to be a Civil War buff to enjoy. It's a a great walk just to take in the scenery overlooking Chattanooga and the Tennessee River. The view of the Civil War artillery on the rocky crags of the mountain is perhaps one of the best known views in the entire state.
If you go down to the old Ochs Museum, you'll have the best view of the Tennessee River, around Mocassin Bend, but be prepared to walk some steep steps. Otherwise you can stay on the paved trails around the massive Civil War New York monument and have a nice time. But always look at the forecast.. Low clouds will kill the experience, and make it kind of cool and damp. Also, admission is $3 per person for adults. You can pay at the visitors center right across the street. Parking is in meters, at about 25-cents per 15 minutes.
