To visit the Veterans Memorial Park, exit US Highway 27 at the Harrison Lane Exit, about 15 minutes north of the I-24/US 27 intersection in Chattanooga. Turn west (left if you're coming from Chattanooga), and turn left at the first stoplight. The Park is ahead about a mile on the right, adjacent to the highway. "BlueStar 786" can't be missed!
