Description Provides information from the Tennessee Riverpark Master Plan.
The master plan proposes to preserve natural riches and blend them with private developments along the river corridor.
This will benefit residents, strengthen the economy, and attract visitors.
The plan is the result of a three year public participation process and provides a twenty-year vision for the riverfront.
Chattanooga has been the crossroads for trade, transportation, and settlement. The Tennessee Riverpark will display this history and bring it to life.
A continuous trail system along both banks of the river will help conserve the natural beauty and expand opportunities for outdoor recreation.
The plan provides significant economic opportunities for housing, commercial recreation, shops, restaurants, museums, and industry.
A new organization will be needed to oversee designing, funding, building, and managing the entire system.
The Tennessee Riverpark is an ambitious plan that will take three phases and twenty or more years to accomplish.
