Chattanooga is a transformed town. There’s no doubt about that. Our economy is booming, investments dollars are flowing into our city, and downtown and the surrounding areas are growing at an unprecedented pace. Growth is great, but Chattanooga needs to continue to invest in its system of parks and greenways to increasing demand for these places. “The Next Big Thing” or opportunity to do just that is the Moccasin Bend National Archeological District. Added to Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park in 2003, Moccasin Bend brings 750+ acres of nationally significant green space into the city, in addition to a place that is spiritual for many associated Native American tribes.
The Northshore Public Spaces plan is a four part plan to connect locals, visitors, and tourists alike to the incredible historical and recreational resources of Moccasin Bend. Via tree lined boulevards, sidewalks, and parks, the Northshore Public Spaces envisions a Chattanooga that embraces Moccasin Bend and animates this incredible place.
