Somehow, we missed this special little area on past visits. There are great trails for walking or biking which run along a portion of the river with interesting sculptures.

I love this section of Chattanooga - makes me feel like I'm in Europe. The Back Inn Cafe' and Rembrandt's is worth the trip. There is also a bakery and Italian Restaurant.
