Went here to take pictures of where Forrest Gump was filmed, unfortunately it was moved. Still took pictures and enjoyed the naturally beautiful trees.

Foolishly forgot to read TA reviews before heading here, had only read that this was the square where Forrest Gump sat in the movie. Needless to say, was very disappointed that there is no bench here but that it's been moved to a museum. Apart from that, it wasn't really any different from the other small park squares in Savannah.

Nice square, but Forest Gump bench is now in museum because people were chipping off pieces of it for souvenirs.

If you are a big Forrest Gump fan, this is a must see. I recognized everything right away. However if you are not a Gump fan, it is still well worth the visit, really nice to see!

My husband and I got married in the square in October and couldn't have asked for a better setting. The trees were beautiful, the area quiet, and the weather gorgeous. The squares are very easy to rent, and the folks in the Parks and Rec department are incredibly helpful.

This is a pleasant Square to sit on a bench and enjoy the big trees. However, if you're looking for for Forrest Gump's bench, it's not there. It was a prop.

The little old lady in Forrest Gump wasn't exactly right. Henry Street was actually a few blocks the other way from where she pointed. This square where the bench portion of Forrest Gump was filmed is quiet and nostalgic with its historic surroundings and trees with spanish moss in them. There is only a flower bed and sign for Chippewa... More

There is no park bench from the movie Forrest Gump. But half the fun is trying to figure out where the scene was shot. Hint: Look towards City Hall.
