In 1911, a significant parcel of land was gifted to the city of Chattanooga. Montague Park was to be developed into a place for people to convene and take in the beauty of the land, but in 2003 state regulators found methane leaks in the park from where it had been previously used as a landfill, and the park was closed.Plan to see Sculpture Fields at Montague Park and other attractions that appeal to you using our Chattanooga trip builder site.
However now, more than a hundred years later, the original vision is finally being realized through the creation of Sculpture Fields at Montague Park, a non-profit, outdoor museum filled with dozens of large-scale contemporary works of sculpture. The 30-acre park, nestled in the burgeoning Southside arts district, will become an international destination of cultural tourism. Phase one is slated to be open within year 2015 and will be open to the public from dawn till dusk each day with no charge for admission.
Sculpture Fields hopes to foster and encourage creativity through monumental sculpture exhibitions, diverse recreational and education offerings, and above all, to be a welcoming, vibrant place of enjoyment, connectivity, and transformation.

Sculpture Fields at Montague Park reviews
Interesting sculptures with Lookout Mountain in the background. Walk at your own pace and find the angle that best suits the way you want your photos to come out. The path is mostly gravel and grass. more »
This place has really come a LOOOOONG way since it opened! The best outdoor friendly dog park and one of the very few sculpture parks my wife and I have visited that is close to the urban center... more »
This is my favorite Park in Chattanooga, especially to walk my dog. Very often I will go and have the entire part to myself. What's funny is I lived right down the street for two years and never went to this park. It's like a hidden gem, there's hardly anybody ever here and it's a huge field with incredible art and statues everywhere. I love it more every time I go. I'm from Atlanta and I don't know of any parks like this in Atlanta and Atlanta is a huge city so that says something.
Really hot. But I had a fun experience with my family and dog. ❤️🐶
