Ross's Landing

Ross' Landing is the center of activity and history on the downtown Chattanooga waterfront.  The site is a public park and performance venue, with the main stage being the Tennessee River. Visitors can use the tiered seating to watch regattas, races, concerts or just watch daily activity on the river. 

The area was named for Capt. John Ross and is known primarily as a launching point for forced removal of Native Americans during the forced removal of 1838, or "Trail of Tears."
