Forsyth Park Review

The heart of the city's outdoor life, Forsyth Park hosts a number of popular cultural events, including film screenings, sporting events, and the annual Savannah Jazz Festival. A glorious white fountain dating to 1858, Confederate and Spanish-American War memorials, multiple playgrounds, and an old fort are spread across this grand park. Recently restored, the fort now contains a café, an open-air stage, and lovely fountains. The park's one-mile perimeter is among the prettiest walks in the city and takes you past many beautifully restored historic homes.

    Forsyth Park Review

    Provided an excellent break for the kids, as well as a bathroom break, after a couple of hours walking the streets of Savannah. A recreational oasis among the living history books.

    Very good park to visit

    Located a few blocks south of the squares in the Historic District, this park is a greatly exaggerated version of them all -- it boasts both a large commemorative statue and a grand fountain (the squares have one or the other) as well as plenty of flower beds and large oaks in its northern half, playing fields in its southern half. Well worth finding.

    Farther than you think

    During the hot days of summer, this park seems farther from the historic district than you'd think! Children's playground was pretty good and of course is FREE! The beautiful fountain featured in many photos is near the playground but be aware that Savannah's homeless population can be hanging out on the benches there.
