It was nice to see that pieces of history is being preserved at this park. We did not take the guided tour but walked around on our own. Interesting information to be seen.

First visit … was a nice day, and the spring blooms were just getting started. I imagine this park is much more lush in the summer and fall, but I still enjoyed the walk, plus the view of the Tennessee River is amazing. Definitely recommended....More

Compared to the very pricey Rock City, at $7 the views from Point Park were fabulous! Very easy parking, entrance, & walk to the views. You can see all of downtown Chattanooga & the beautiful river. Save your money & go here!
