I've walked through this square multiple times while in Savannah. It's clean and safe. I would try to stay on Bull street if traveling to here at night, as it is safer. The trees are covered in Spanish moss. The trees are aged and well maintained. Benches are free from human messes and the bricked walkway is free from limbs... More

Really pretty public square. The Forest Gump bench isn't there, but you can sit on the wall with the same backdrop and eat some chocolates. If you watch near the cinema you can see a Forest Gump actor jump on the trolley and talk for a bit. He is quite good.

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.
