It's located on a small piece of government property that many citizens of Chattanooga ignore because the only use in their mind is the swimming area. There isn't a whole lot of flat ground, so you can't throw a frisbee or a baseball very well. This piece of property is on the forgotten side of the Chickamauga Dam. On the other side, Chattanooga's Riverwalk and River Park is constantly crawling with people. However, on the opposite side, between the dam itself and a marina, lies a grassy field with a swimming area, several hills, and a sidewalk cutting through the middle. There aren't many who know it well, but a small portion of Chattanoogans know this piece of property, probably far better than they would prefer. This piece of property is the home of the Chickamauga Dam 5k Cross Country course. This weekend, it will be home to the Chattanooga Cross Country Festival.
