  • Verywellkept and clean. Kids enjoyed playing in the fountain. Lots of kids there but did not feel over crowded. Nice carousel but be sure to bring dry clothes - can't ride wet (even damp).  more »

  • Coolidge Park is a fantastic place to take your family, especially in the summer time when the kids can play in the fountains. The walking bridge is a great way to see the best of Chattanooga. The North Shore has many quaint shops and restaurants, while on the opposite side of the river reside a million and one things to do.
  • Coolidge Park is a great place to hang out. It has a beautiful view of the river and certain areas. If you had children it's a great place to take the kids lots of space for them to run around and wear themselves out for nap time. Very close by there some refreshments that you can get depending on what your case is from hot dogs and ice cream and soda too adult beverages. Now when I hot day like today there's plenty of sunshine, and there are also plenty of trees that you can spread your blanket out under for some shade to enjoy the beautiful Summer Breeze that comes off the river. I enjoyed Coolidge Park no matter what season it is because it's just a great place to hang out
  • An epic waterfront park that is perfect for building those "old world American dream" memories that every person in the country will inevitably have, Coolidge Park is the place to be. Whether you're having a picnic with the family, throwing a football around fresh cut grass, playing on a splash-pad fountain, or enjoying a nice walk or swim; this location has it all, and all is enjoyable. Nearby you'd find Clumpie's Ice Cream, a gorgeous art museum a short walk across a walking bridge and live music from the locals. There's even a nice musical sculpture for the kids to bang on. Five stars all day.
  • This place is awesome for all kinds of family fun!! They have a cool little carousel that's super cheap to ride and they've got an awesome little splash pad ALL in an amazing are right off the river.. It's simply a beautiful place to take anyone!! Don't FORGET the cool walking bridge within walking distance from the park!!
  • Great park with a very cool carousel. Hand carved animals. A great great grassy area for kids to run around and play in and water features for the kids to play. One of the best green spaces I've seen.
