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 reviews
Photo ops galore between Walnut Street Bridge, the carousel and the surprisingly large park itself. Great Chattanooga freebie (excluding the carousel). more »
I think this park in Chattanooga has had events of "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes" and I would like to be involved in this event after COVID-19. more »
Coolidge has been a memory of mine since childhood. I enjoyed coming here for field trips with my school, as well as play days with my friends and family. We now have carried on the tradition by bringing our son! He loved playing in the water fountain and the beautiful carousel. We got some family pictures with the iconic walking bridge, and made priceless memories. Always a great day at the park!
The water fountain splash area is big hit with the kids. The scenery is beautiful. The grounds are well kept. Great family atmosphere. Oh yeah, the merry-go-round is a lot of fun too!
