This newly renovated park across from the Tennessee Aquarium features a river pier, a marina, a natural amphitheatre and the Chattanooga Green which is used for small festivals, concerts and for park users to capitalize on a great view of the river. There is a public boat landing area here.
As a performance venue, Ross's Landing's main stage is the Tennessee River. Visitors use tiered seating to watch regattas, races, concerts, or the river's daily activity.
Ross's Landing is the former name of Chattanooga, Tennessee, named for John Ross, the leader of the Cherokee Nation. The area was a launching point for the 1838 forced removal of Native Americans known as "the Trail of Tears."
