  • This is a large park for walking or jogging, but it runs parallel to the river so every step is a thing of beauty. If you walk up under the Walnut Street Bridge, you will find a street full of chic...  more »

  • So, I really LOVE this park. And, what I love so love so much about it is that it has trails around a wetland that is constantly being invested into in an effort to reintroduce native species of plants and such. There is a pier that overlooks the wetland as well as a footbridge on the other side to view all the native aquatic creatures. You will see turtles basking on logs and bobbing in the water. You will also see Herons flying hunting for fish and frogs. The frogs at night sound amazing!! Also, if you walk down steps to the bottom to one of the banks of the wetland you can watch tadpoles, fish and minnows swimming in the shallows. All of this wild natural native beauty....in the heart of our city!! Sidewalks are all around. Restaurants, other parks and waterways, a picnic pavilion, 2 big hills for kids to slide down on cardboards, or to lay out and get some sun, or people playing fetch with their dogs and helping them burn off energy on those steep hills. I've seen yoga classes out there, I've seen school athletes jogging, etc. It is a wonderful wild space for the whole family!
  • Love that Chattanooga is cultivating native plant species and wildlife in this wetland that is gorgeous. Surrounded by sidewalks and short natural trails that lead to the river. You can see the TN Aquarium, grill out, and do audio tours of the native plant species around the park. You won't be sorry you visited!! Oh, also a pavilion with clean restrooms.
