Since 1994, The Trust for Public Land has worked to create a network of greenways and trails, connecting some of Chattanooga's most cherished natural and cultural resources. The Chattanooga Greenway Master Plan calls for creating greenway trails along tributaries of the Tennessee River and connecting them to the Riverpark, a celebrated linear park along the banks of the Tennessee River. Targeted areas include the North Chickamauga Creek, the South Chickamauga Creek, the Chattanooga Creek, Mountain Creek, and Lookout Creek.
Chattanooga is a city with a thriving economy based on quality of life and easy access to open space, a city that has also attracted new industries.

- Chattanooga's Parks Investment is Great for BusinessOver the last two decades The Trust for Public Land has been a partner in the City of Chattanooga's investments in dozens of new parks and natural areas. This investment has paid off, as new businesses -- most notably Volkswagen -- have been attracted to a revitalized Chattanooga.
