Chattanooga's Walnut Street Bridge dubbed 'Great Public Space'
The historic Walnut Street Bridge, whose restoration was hailed as a
example of government, civic and private partnership, earned designation
as one of 10 Great Public Spaces for 2013 by the American Planning
Association, the organization announced Friday.
In singling out the bridge for inclusion in this year's list, the
association noted that the "pedestrian jewel" sparked the community's
interest in its riverfront.
"The Walnut Street Bridge stands as a symbol of Downtown
Chattanooga's rebirth and a visible reminder of how visionary planning
can galvanize and revitalize a community," a news release stated.
