This is a cool bridge and I’m glad they kept it up. Nice to park on one side of the bridge and then walk over for lunch. Then you can walk off lunch on the way back!

Nice walk. Good people watching. Chattanooga has a great downtown to walk around and explore. A hidden gem of a city.

The bridge is pedestrian only and was enjoyed by walkers , bikers, photographers and Instagramers. A perfect place to view the city skyline and walk to Coolidge Park for an ice cream or hop on the Tennessee Riverwalk trail.

Really nice bridge, it’s nice that you can walk across it and it’s only for pedestrians so no cars to worry about. Really nice views of the river and of other bridges nearby. Lots of shopping and restaurants nearby at the end of each side of the bridge. Ice cream shop, restaurants, souvenir shops, playground and a carousel.

The bridge is a fabulous place to bring young kids. So many people out on a Sunday evening. Beautiful views and parking isn’t terrible. Highly recommend

After a long car trip, it was so great to stretch our legs with a walk on the Walnut Street Bridge. I had been here before and enjoyed the whole scene where you can get exercise and do some people watching. There are shops over on the Northside, including a lovely bookstore with used and new offerings.

Pedestrian only bridge that has beautiful views of the Chattanooga riverfront, Lookout Mountain in the distance, the Tennessee River, and a small island in the middle of the river.

Takes about ten minutes to cross. Most people will be initially walking from the downtown side to the North Shore. Once you reach the North Shore there is a carousel and water features for kids in the park below the bridge.

The carousel is open year round (11-7 daily in March) and the water play area is turned on during the summer. There are also some shops and restaurants on the North Shore side.

Lots of families and people walking across the bridge while we were there. Parking might be easier on the North Shore and walking back downtown than vice versa. You can walk in about five minutes from the aquarium but you do have to walk up a steep street to reach the bridge entrance.

There is a clumpies ice cream on the North Shore by the bridge and a place called the ice cream show on the downtown side of the bridge.

What a great old bridge that’s the oldest bridge in Chattanooga! It is used by those walking and running, singles/couples/families, dog walkers and sightseers. Everyone we passed smiled, spoke or waved. It was a beautiful place for a morning walk.
