Miller Park 2

Miller Park: blends with the city context while also paying homage to the landscape of the greater Chattanooga area.

At the far end of the park, a pavilion called the EPB Community Stage acts as an end cap to the park and creates a covered and technologically equipped performance venue for concerts, movies, community gatherings, and more. With the belief that parks are spaces to celebrate and enjoy the company of others, Miller Park is Chattanooga’s answer to the modern public square.
