The Future of Montague Park to be Discussed

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF)- The community surrounding Montague Park in East Chattanooga will have a chance to discuss the park’s future tomorrow.

Chattanooga Parks and Outdoors along with the Chattanooga Design Studio will be hosting two planning sessions for the park, open to anyone.

They will be discussing ways to connect the sculpture fields to the soccer and rugby fields, which are currently separated by mounds.

The park, which used to be a landfall, has been a symbol of revitalization and many hope that process is far from finished.

Scott Martin, the administrator for Chattanooga Parks and Outdoors, said, “So this work session is a chance for folks to tell us, what do you want to do when you go out there? We know you love to take in the beautiful work by John Henry, and the visionary artist that he is, and take in soccer. But what does it mean as a walker, who wants to walk around? What does it mean for shade? Where would you like restrooms? How would you like a farmer’s market, or food, or to have picnics out there.”

The first planning session is 9:30 to 11:30 Tuesday morning at La Paz on Will

ow Street.

The second planning session is 6 to 8 Tuesday evening at Parkside Hall on Polk Avenue.

If you are unable to attend, you can leave comments online at Montague Park’s website.
