Family Fundays

Pack a picnic and bring the whole family to Greenway Farm City Park for an afternoon of activity and family fun! Outdoor Chattanooga will provide equipment for families to try archery at our outdoor archery range or rent a canoe for $25 to paddle on North Chickamauga Creek. There’s trails to explore by foot and bike, and plenty of green lawn to throw frisbees, play freeze tag or enjoy a picnic. Our staff will be on hand to help with archery and canoeing. All other activities are self guided. Our activities are appropriate for ages 5 and up. See you at the park on Sunday for a family funday!
