One of Savannah's many squares downtown, around which the historic district was originally built. You can purchase an inexpensive walking guide book (less than $6) that will tell you the basics about the squares and the significant people and places that made and make the area what it is today.

One of the things that makes Savannah so special are the 22 gorgeous squares throughout the city. Stroll through as many as you can squeeze in!

This square has lovely blooms and can relax on a bench and take in the serenity of the parks. Generally people going by and on the weekend some of the parks have brides and parties taking photos so that is entertaining also. It is fun strolling from park to park and comparing. You never know what might be blooming or... More

A friend and I walked all the squares, and though this was one of the smaller, quieter ones, I found it to be the most beautiful, especially with all the flowers in bloom. Worth a visit.

Pulaski Square is named after the Count Pulaski, who was killed at the Battle of Savannah in 1779. Pulaski, the highest ranking foreign officer killed during the American Revolution, is honoured with his own monument in Monterey Square, as well as this square bearing his name. Like all the other squares in Savannah, it is a beautiful and restful spot;... More

I am somewhat familiar with Casmir Pulaski which we celebrate in annually, in October, back in Grand Rapids Michigan. Interesting actually being in the area in close proximity to where he actually fought and died. All of Savannah's squares are very well kept and a joy to wander through.

The little squares in historic savannah are quite charming. This one is clean. Has some nice benches for sitting. There was a fellow playing his flute that added to the charm. Definitely worth stopping in as you walk around the historic district

We went to the actual Pulaski Square (as it is named on the map) and were so very disappointed - not even a single statue-however we realized that people must be calling Monterey Square "Pulaski" Square as that is where the Pulaski statue stands. Our tour guide made it very clear how confusing it can be due to the fact... More

I asked my girlfriend to marry me here at this square. It was the best decision of my life. This square is my favorite for that exact reason. I wouldn't visit Savannah without coming back to this square. In fact we will probably make a trip back to Savannah just to come back to this square. Compared to the other... More

This is one the most beautiful squares in Savannah. Although it doesn't have any monuments like the others, the square consists of countless flowering bushes and is absolutely beautiful. While visiting Pulaski Square, my boyfriend of four years got down on his knee and proposed! Pulaski Square is definitely one of the more scenic and beautiful parts of Savannah! It's... More
