  • The river walk is really nice. Walk from Amnicola Highway to Lookout Mountain following the river the whole way. Many boats will pass and there are places in the downtown you can enjoy. Get your steps...  read more »
  • We walked along this & loved the views of the river. The water leading down is not only refreshing but also shows a history of the river & the Native Americans before us. 
  • A very relaxing clean atmosphere for the family. I would recommend venturing across the walking bridge. Great views. 
  • This is one of my favorite places to run it walk in Chattanooga. It is quiet and the scenery is great. A couple of miles pass before you know it.
  • Great park for a cookout, walk, run, cycling or kid's play. This area is a large space with playgrounds and walking paths. There are rest room areas and the walking paths border the beautiful river. There are plenty of trees for shade. That and the river help make things a little cooler on hot summer days.
  • Nice park. Plenty of fishing piers, nice view of the river. Dogs not allowed in the park or on the Riverwalk, but they should be - if they were, rating would be 5/5.
  • Would give it negative stars if I could. To preface our experience: my fellow pilot and I were in town waiting for the Kentucky Derby to finish so we could work over their airspace again. We decided to take our longboards down to this trail to check out the area, as we'd never been here before. We cruise along, no issues, getting passed by a lot of bikes but not a problem. As we round a corner there is a Park Ranger blocking the path, forcing us to get off. This is literally a word for word transcript of how the conversation goes: Ranger: hey guys Us: hows it going sir Ranger: can you guys give me a reason why I shouldn't give you a ticket? Us: ??? Not really sure what you mean sir Ranger: you can't skateboard on the walk. There are baby strollers and pedestrians and you could lose control and hit them. There are signs up saying no skateboards. Us: there is a sign behind you sir that says "bikes and skates yield to pedestrians". We aren't from here and didn't see anything. Ranger: how far did you park? Us: a ways back (was maybe a mile and a half) Ranger: well walk your boards back. If I see on you on them again I will give you a ticket. Us: ??? Ok whatever. The whole time we walked back, bikes were flying by us going 15-20 mph, no bells, no warnings. I have literally cruised all over the country and this is the most absurd thing I have ever heard. Apparently longboards (which are not technically even a skateboard) are a menace to park systems everywhere. The ranger could have been a lot less rude to us about the whole ordeal. Will NEVER go back, and will not recommended it to anyone. The ride wasn't even anything to write home about in itself. Go at your own risk.
  • Great family space. There are playgrounds, Piers, restrooms, picnic tables and drink machines. Lots of walk paths and scenery to enjoy.
