Coolidge Park

Once an abandoned shipping yard, Coolidge Park has carried the spirit of revitalization from downtown to the North Shore. The park features a century-old, hand-carved carousel. A large fountain with stone horses, lions, and sea turtles sprays water to cool youngsters on hot summer afternoons. A large common area along the riverfront allows for games, picnics and relaxing afternoons. Two stages and a pavilion area offer space for weddings and other special events.

Booker T. Washington State Park

Spread across 353 acres (143 hectares) of serene pastures along the Chickamauga Lake's eastern banks, the Booker T Washington State Park is an integral outdoor space for locals living in the scenic Chattanooga area. Operated and maintained by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, the state park is divided into three different recreational areas, specifically dedicated to biking, fishing and picnicking. Fishing zones come with boat launching areas and pools with bathhouses, while the picnicking regions come with grills and playgrounds for the little ones.

Point Park and Ochs Museum

During the United States Civil War, the Confederate armies of Chattanooga used the East Brow of Lookout Mountain as their lookout point. The panoramic view of the valley gave the Confederates an advantage over any approaching Union Army. However, during the bloody battle for Chattanooga, the northern troops waited for the clouds to fall upon the point and advanced under the cloud cover. Before the Southern troops knew what was happening, their fate was sealed. This park and museum commemorates this struggle for visual superiority. The Confederates were defeated and the post captured, but it was a valiant battle now known as the Battle Above the Clouds.
