Great for a stroll after a meal or for a fun background for pictures.

Had a delicious meal in downtown Chattanooga and then took a stroll over the bridge to Coolidge park on the other side of the river.

The only pedestrian-only bridge in Chattanooga which crosses the Tennessee River. Dining & shopping on both the north & south sides of the river. With views of the downtown and Northshore skylines to include the TN Aquarium, Bellsouth Park, Ross's Landing, Lookout Mountain on the southern downstream side, the Hunter Museum and McClellan Island (a wildlife sanctuary) on the southern...

This beautiful old rain bridge is all wooden walkway now with great views of both Chattanooga's downtown riverfront, but also the riverboats, rec boats, and kayaks that are on the water. This also connects the Aquarium and Arts District area with the more hipster Northshore shopping area. Definitely go enjoy both!

Beautiful, great exercise. Beautiful views. You need a good hour to walk across and back. This is an interactive venue.

Nice views, neat wooden bridge. Makes for a nice walk from one side of the city, to the other. A lot of people walking dogs, bicyclists, joggers, and lollygaggers, like us!

Not exactly sure what to say about this but here goes. Whilst staying one night at the Choo Choo hotel my wife and I walked all the way downtown over the car bridge, through the neat little arts and crafts area and back over the pedestrian bridge returning to our hotel. It was a lovely walk and on the pedestrian... More

This is an impressive pedestrian-only bridge across the TN river. We parked on the south end by the Ice Cream Show shop, then walked across it to the north side. At the end, we walked down some stairs to a pretty city park with an indoor carousel amd paved paths to the river, under the bridge. On a beautiful sunny... More

Peaceful with gorgeous scenery and interesting sights. Walking across the Tennessee River on this old bridge will give you goose bumps. It's a wonderful way to spend a romantic evening or just go for a stroll with the family. The lights coming up in the city make the views spectacular especially at sunset. Definitely would go there again

A former railroad bridge which was spared from demolition, the Walnut St. Bridge is a Chatt. must see. It links to the downtown at one end and the funky north shore on the other, both with loads of restaurants, the Hunter Art Museum and locally owned boutiques. The list is too long to mention. Fresh air, the river beneath. Approx... More
