Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park will waive the entrance fees to enter Point Park on top of Lookout Mountain on Sunday. Guests can experience the views from Chattanooga’s surrounding landscapes found in the nation’s first national military park.
Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park Superintendent Cathy Cook says that “Birthdays are a time to celebrate, and we want everyone to visit a national park.”
National parks belong to all Americans so, on the National Park Service’s 97th birthday, all are encouraged to visit a park – join a ranger-led tour, take in the scenery, or visit one of the many museums. This fee-free Sunday provides an opportunity for individuals and families alike to take an affordable day to explore a nearby national treasure.
