Free National Park Day on April 20th

National parks are America’s best idea, and there are more than 400 parks available to everyone, every day. The fee-free days provide a great opportunity to visit a new place or an old favorite, especially one of the national parks that normally charge an entrance fee. The others are free all the time. The entrance fee waiver for fee-free days does not cover amenity or user fees for activities such as camping, boat launches, transportation, or special tours.

Easter at Coolidge Park

This event is FREE for the whole family. The egg hunt begins at 9 a.m Sunday but be sure to arrive early to set up your lawn chairs in the park and take part in the other fun activities! After the egg hunt, grab your seat and enjoy songs of praise led by Stuart Heights’ Worship Choir and Band, followed by a message of faith, hope and gospel of Jesus Christ at 10am.

The community is invited to worship together in this location beginning at 7:02 a.m. as the sun rises over Chattanooga. Be sure to come early for parking and seating.
