Playground
“Ross's Landing is a large grassy area on the riverfront downtown, perfect for kite flying, picnicking, photographing, and having a good time in general. There's even a playground for the kids! It's within a short walk of the Tennessee Aquarium, Creative Discovery Museum, Cold Stone Creamery, the stadium where the Chattanooga Lookouts play (baseball), and lots and lots of great restaurants. ”
