This is a nice park with a carousel and fountain for kids to play in. It is along the river with restaurants adjacent to the park. It's a great place to spend several hours on a nice day.

Great place to spend a couple of hours. Kids played on all of the statues, rode the carousel, walked across the bridge and enjoyed the views on the river.

I had my first kiss with my girlfriend here so it has a lot of value to me. It's very beautiful and is a great place for a photoshoot. Very late at night I would suggest that you don't visit because it can be a...More

An alright city park just along the Tennessee River. It houses the carousel building, and has some walking paths and a view of the river (and the Riverfront neighborhood of Chattanooga just across the river). Not a beautiful park (especially in winter), but it's not...More

There is not much going on during the day at Coolidge Park during the day. Difficult to find parking. Restaurants are nearby, though. I didn't see much. Didn't stay long.

Well maintained and clean park along the riverfront. Paved paths make it easy to navigate. Beautiful fountain and views. There is an antique carousel in its own building.

This park is a great mix of activities (carousel, bridge, fountains) and wide open lawns and trails. It's easy to relax on a blanket, ride a bike around, and people-watch. Grab dinner at a nearby eatery and let the sun set all around you.

An absolutely beautiful, well-maintained park! The fountain is simply mesmerizing, regardless of age! Taking a ride on the carousel is an absolute must. Where else can you ride on intricately hand-carved animals for a dollar! It's a must for young and old!

A great place for kids to run around. Merry-Go-Round and water feature I'm sure it's bustling in the summer months. The NorthShore is a great area to go to walk in the park, walk on the bridge, and visit some of the restaurants and shops...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.
