With a large pedestrian bridge and views over the Tennessee River, Coolidge Park is a favorite of both locals and visitors. Visit military memorials, picnic on a lawn, or take a ride on the antique carousel at the park. If you are craving some exercise, you can try your hand at rock climbing or take an easy stroll down the Tennessee Riverwalk. The park is near the downtown area, so entertainment and dining are close by.

Coolidge Park does not have as much as I had hoped in terms of public activities, but I did enjoy walking the pedestrian bridge and I enjoyed the carousel. The park is attractive more »
Love this park, fantastic for kite flying, kicking around a soccer ball, and much more! There are several picnic tables with places to grill. On hot days watching the fountain is almost as fun as splashing in it. Dogs on leashes are welcome, but not in fountain area please. To top off your day at the park bring a little extra cash to go rock climbing on the bridge supports, or ride on an incredibly gorgeous carousel.
We love the Carousel! $1 per person and kids 3 and under (I am pretty sure it's 3 and under) ride free! Anytime we are near Coolidge Park, we always ride at least once or twice! The staff are always very nice. There are rocking chairs if you don't all want to ride the carousel. It is in a climate controlled building and there are bathrooms. 5-stars for the price, friendly staff, cleanliness and the fact that our three-year old always wants to go!
