Walking Walnut street bridge is beautiful

One of the most fun activities in Chattanooga. Great views of the river, the city, and it's just a beautiful walking bridge with plenty of places to stop and sit.

The Walnut St Bridge is an easy scenic walk for all levels, strollers, dogs, bikes, etc. Beautiful river views, benches. Fantastic shops and food on both sides. Parking at Coolidge Park & Renaissance Park off Frasier Ave. Occasional events on bridge.

Neat place to visit while in the area. We went there during the night time. You can walk or ride a bike all the way across the bridge. The lights on the bridge and the lights of Chattanooga can all be seen from the bridge.

This is a pedestrian only bridge that is over 100 years old. It connects to a park on one end and the Riverwalk and museum on the other. There are lots of restaurants close to either end. A very good ice cream shop on the south end. This is a wonderful stroll with a nice view day or night in... More

The Walnut Street Bridge was on our "to do" list before we arrived in Chattanooga and it exceeded our expectations. The best option is to park on the opposite side of downtown (public parking was very reasonable) and there is an indoor carousel and outdoor park on that side of the bridge. The views from the bridge are really spectacular... More

A walk across the bridge makes for a lovely experience and is a great way to see both sides of Chattanooga without driving! Taking a walk at sunset is especially rewarding.

Walnut Street Bridge is good for walking or cycling. It offers fantastic views and a cool place to visit. Do not miss Ice Cream Show on the downtown side of the bridge.

I had been to Chattanooga several times, and had never really took the time to view this bridge. It's GORGEOUS! Chattanooga is one of the few cities where you can still get really close to the riverfront and enjoy it. Selfies, and all!! There's a park for the kids nearby, and a few shops. Definitely plan to spend a little... More
