Montague Park is the largest urban park in Chattanooga.

Its 45 acres are home to Sculpture Fields at Montague Park and the Chattanooga Football Club Foundation.

An urban design and landscape planning process is now reimagining the park, to revitalize the space for this century.

Two public meetings on Tuesday will solicit community input for the project: a morning session at La Paz Chattanooga, 809 S. Willow St., starting at 9:30 AM - and an evening session at Parkside Hall, 2035 Polk St., starting at 6 PM.

Scott Martin is administrator of Chattanooga Parks and Outdoors.

John Kett is managing principal at Reed Hilderbrand, the landscape architecture firm for the reimagining process.
