Southside Community Park
At the former Charles A. Bell School site
Located at 3501 Central Avenue between East 37th and East 38th streets.
The City of Chattanooga will invest $1 million for a new park in historic Alton Park. This new green space, which will be located at the site of the former Charles A. Bell school, will enhance the vibrancy of the neighborhood and connect residents with options for recreation and gathering. The project is being led by the City of Chattanooga's Open Spaces and Public Work's Engineering divisions.
Through a public input process, community leaders decided on the name; Southside Community Park
