Quality of Life

Walker County residents and visitors alike enjoy our community’s natural assets and attractions such as the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park and Rock City Gardens. One of our newest attractions, McLemore, sits atop Lookout Mountain and features a championship golf course, a gated community that houses both residents and guests, a clubhouse, restaurant and beautiful scenic views. Outdoor enthusiasts often take advantage of camping, caving, fishing, hiking, kayaking, mountain biking, and rock climbing throughout the county’s mountain and recreational areas such as Crockford-Pigeon Mountain.

CHI Memorial Hospital Georgia, located in nearby Fort Oglethorpe, provides healthcare services such as emergency, laboratory, radiology, pharmacy, outpatient treatments, and medical and surgical services to Walker County residents. CHI Memorial is the only health system in the Chattanooga region to receive a five star rating (5 out of 5 stars) from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and has been named Best Regional Hospital by U.S. News and World Report.

Our educational institutions are dedicated to preparing students for higher education opportunities and employment with major employers such as Roper Corporation, Shaw Industries, Audia Plastics and Hitachi Astemo Rock Spring.

Affordable housing can be found throughout Walker County with year over year growth in the number of requests for housing permits for single-family homes and new residential developments under construction.
