Chattanooga park wins special designation

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- Ross's Landing Park in Chattanooga has won a special designation from City Parks Alliance, a national urban park advocacy organization.

It's been named a "front-line park" as an example of urban park excellence, innovation and stewardship. The group said Ross's Landing exemplifies the power of partnerships to create and maintain urban parks.

In 2005, Chattanooga capped an urban redevelopment program by completing a three-year initiative dubbed the 21st Century Waterfront Plan. Part of it was the redevelopment of Ross's Landing Park. Also included was the expansion of the Tennessee Aquarium and the Hunter Museum of American Art.

The park, on the south shore of the Tennessee River, also is a performance venue with tiered seating.
