Wolftever Creek Greenway

The Wolftever Creek Greenway is a paved, pedestrian walking and exercise trail. It was built to provide a safe trail for residents. Beginning at the Imagination Station playground behind City Hall, Phase I stretches approximately seven-tenths of a mile. It continues north underneath Apison Pike until it intersects Wolftever Creek, follows it east, and goes underneath Ooltewah Ringgold Road, near the pond. Phase II goes over the Ooltewah Ringgold Road bridge and turns east on the other side of Wolftever Creek to Spalding Drive. Phase II is approximately eight-tenths of a mile. Phase III continues from Spalding Drive across Tucker Road to the Nature Nook located at Tallant Road and Apison Pike.

Additions to the greenway are being planned that will continue throughout the city and provide a safe means for walking and exercising.

The Nature Nook

The Nature Nook is an amphitheater located at the intersection of Tallant Road and Apison Pike along the Wolftever Creek Greenway. It was built by the East Hamilton County Kiwanis Club, who then donated it to the local residents. Nestled among the trees, the residents are free to use it at any time at no charge. 

Veteran's Memorial Park

The Veterans Memorial Park is located along the Wolftever Creek Greenway close to city hall. The park includes numerous plaques, sculptures, and flags honoring those that have served in the armed forces of our country. Take a moment to walk through the park and reflect on those that have served and the sacrifices that have been made past and present.
