Welcome
What if Chattanooga became the first National Park City in America?

The Chattanooga National Park City campaign is a community-driven effort to celebrate, elevate, and conserve the people, places, civic spirit, and cultures that make Chattanooga and the Tennessee River Valley so unique and irreplaceable. The idea is to build our city around our unique values, and in doing so, celebrate the best of Chattanooga and those that call it home. This is an intentionally human-first approach to community conservation that creates more volunteerism and civic engagement around community health, beauty, art, and fun. While not affiliated with the National Park Service, the movement shares the idea that we protect our most precious resources and places not only today but for generations to come. This intends to help our community shape our city around the values that make it so special outlined in the Chattanooga National Park City charter. The goal is for Chattanooga to earn the status of the first National Park City in North America by 2025.
