Plenty of room to spread out a blanket to take in the summer breeze and sunshine. A pleasant sidewalk outlines the shape of the park for a gentle stroll. Bring some water and enjoy!

We came for the holiday weekend and loved visiting this park. Be advised that this is a crazy, busy park but with good reason. It's beautiful and there is a lot to do, especially for the little ones. We'll definitely come back!

What a great place for our kids to experience Chattanooga river front. The carousel is a must do. It is right next to a splash park which was unfortunately down for maintenance but we still had a good time.

Park is nice and big. Carousel had nothing special about it. Splash pad was not going not sure why but with 90 plus heat it would have been nice. With just those two items and only one working it's just a big patch of grass....More

Coolidge Park is free! There is a really great merry-go-round that costs $1 per person, but the rest of the park is free. There are some great shops and places to eat close to the park, too.
