Coolidge Park is more than just a beautiful riverside park for picnics. It also has clever outdoor fountain water-works that kids love to play in on hot summer days, and an unique antique carousel in its own special building. Only about 60 carousels of its type are still operating in the world.
The original wooden carousel animals did not survive so many years and so much usage. Local artists carved each unique animal on the Chattanooga carousel. They are in keeping with carousels of such great vintage, yet convey the generosity and creativity of their makers. To find out more about the carousel, click here.
