Welcome to the City of Chattanooga Parks Department!
Who We Are:
The City of Chattanooga has an extensive network of public parks, playgrounds, walking trails, and leisure facilities. The City, in cooperation with Hamilton County, provides 4,800 acres of park space for passive and active recreation by residents and visitors. The City also maintains linear greenways and trails totaling 35 miles throughout the City.
The City's close proximity to lakes, rivers, and mountains provides additional opportunities for recreation.

We continue to expand and improve parks using the 21st Century Waterfront Plan for downtown areas and the ReCreate 2008 Plan for neighborhoods. We are establishing the City of Chattanooga as a growing leader in how we develop green spaces to achieve improved quality of life for families and individuals through conservation and preservation of our city's natural resources.
Dog Friendly City:
There are many areas throughout the city that allow dogs. Pets are welcome in most city parks as long as they remain on leashes and owners clean up after them. For more information on guidelines and locations for pets, see the Parks Pet Policies on the menu above.
