As part of the City of Chattanooga’s ongoing efforts to create great public spaces and active streets that are the heart of downtown, Patten Parkway will be remade with brick pavers, parking, trees, seating, public art, and more. The new street will recall its history as a market square and be better suited for festivals, concerts, and other events.
