Chattanooga Parks for the Perfect Picnic

Six Chattanooga Parks for the Perfect Picnic

One of the best parts about living in Chattanooga is getting outside and enjoying our city's beautiful outdoor parks.  

Since July is National Picnic Month, it's the perfect time to grab your family, pack a basket (or place a take-out order from your favorite restaurant), and head outdoors to one of our nearby local parks. We have a long list of city parks and greenspaces just right for a leisurely lunch. Our REALTORS® have rounded up a list of six of our favorite spots to enjoy the perfect Chattanooga picnic. 

  1. Coolidge Park - 150 River St, Chattanooga, TN 37405
    Spacious Coolidge Park has scenic trails and plenty of open space. Located in Chattanooga's North Shore neighborhood, this gem of a park has plenty of unique features. Lovely views of the Tennessee River, a pedestrian bridge, and a restored antique carousel are just a few. Coolidge Park is located near Chattanooga entertainment venues, art galleries, shopping, and restaurants.  It also serves as the local hub for numerous concerts, festivals and special events.

Sell Vacant Home
When selling a home, the preferred procedure is timing the sale so you can move right into your new home without overlap. But sometimes life throws you a curve and job transfers, property inheritance or other situations require you to move before the sale of your home is complete.

Does this sound like you? No need to panic. Our REALTORS® share their best tips and tricks for selling a vacant home quickly and at a top price. 

  1. Spruce Up the Exterior
    Your home may not be occupied, but you don't want it to look abandoned. Make sure the exterior of your home, including the garage and grounds, is in impeccable shape. Have a friend, relative or professional service mow the lawn as needed and remove debris. Piled-up mail and newspapers scream "no one's home," so don't forget to stop or redirect delivery.

Chattanooga Restaurant Outside Dining

8 Chattanooga Restaurants with Outdoor Seating

Our REALTORS® love the view here in Chattanooga, and we think you will, too!

The beauty of Chattanooga homes for sale is made even better by the wonderful scenery you can find outdoors. No matter whether you're exploring the heart of the city or walking along the river, Chattanooga combines remarkable natural beauty with its cityscape.

Not surprising that many of the top restaurants in the area offer plenty of outdoor seating for guests. That's especially true of the restaurants that happen to be located on the Riverwalk, the centerpiece of the dining and shopping scene in Chattanooga.

If you're looking for a spot on the patio, don't overlook these options:

  1. Boathouse Rotisserie & Raw Bar – 1459 Riverside Drive Chattanooga, TN 37406
    Boathouse Rotisserie & Raw Bar is one of the best places around for riverside dining. Right on the river, in fact, in a choice location on the historic Riverwalk, it serves up delicacies from the wood-fired grill. It's also one of the busiest oyster bars in the entire United States. The view is great even indoors, but don't forget the outdoor covered patio.
  2. Tony's Pasta Shop & Trattoria – 212 High Street, Chattanooga, TN 37403
    Tony's Pasta Shop & Trattoria is, as the name suggests, the #1 place in town for hand-made Sicilian dishes. Served in a relaxing and casual setting alongside a full selection of fine wines, the food will tempt your taste buds while your eyes delight to the view. The patio puts you right out in front of a gorgeous stretch of the Tennessee River.

Summit of Softball Ooltewah

Our REALTORS® have been known to enjoy a game of softball every now and then when it's time to take a little break from showing Ooltewah homes for sale.

If baseball and softball are your games of choice, then you'll definitely want to check out the Summit of Softball Complex, one of the top attractions in the Tennessee River Valley.

Located right in Ooltewah, Tennessee, the Summit of Softball is a brand new complex that revitalizes an area already known for amateur and professional softball at all age levels.

The Best Softball Fields in the Chattanooga Area Await You at the Summit of Softball

The Summit of Softball has been created in response to a unique community need: High-quality facilities for all of the softball and baseball tournaments that take place all around the region.

It's not just professionals who are in on the game, but youth and adult athletes of all skill levels. With such great interest, a fresh idea was needed to end schedule conflicts and maintenance issues.

The Summit of Softball is the solution that's enriched the community even further.

The eight fields have been lauded by church groups, clubs, senior leagues, and more. The fields accommodate both fast- and slow-pitch softball, kickball, and baseball. Plus, the whole complex is ADA-compliant, allowing people with mobility limitations and other concerns to enjoy.

And it's not just fields – not by a long shot. There are tons of other amenities.

For example, you can make use of practice areas, facilities for coaches and umpires, offices fully equipped with computers and Wi-Fi, record keeping and media booths, and of course, the bleachers. They're beautifully shaded so spectators get the full experience in all weather.

You don't have to be playing a game to enjoy, either. Visitors have the opportunity to relax in a hospitality room or in the picnic areas with manicured grass and shaded seating. You can simply stretch your legs on the walking track or go see the pedestrian plaza.

The Summit of Softball is open daily and hosts a full roster of scheduled games. It welcomes the public from spring through fall. Ooltewah residents are just down the street from the Summit, which you can find at 8646 Apison Pike, Ooltewah, TN 37363.

Even if softball isn't your game, you'll find plenty of amenities that make Ooltewah a unique and attractive place to live. Our experienced team can also help you with Chattanooga homes for sale or recommend opportunities in nine other enticing communities. Contact Fletcher Bright Realty to find out more.
