Great fountain. Pretty area to stroll around in the Victorian District to look at the Victorian Era homes.

This is a very nice park to visit. Lovely pathways, playgrounds, café, water play area, and the fountain is very beautiful. My favorite part was the enclosed Fragrant Garden. Even though you're not able to go inside, it is a gorgeous little addition to the park. There was a farmer's market set up when I was there but it was... More

Forsyth Park is the largest park at the end of the grid and houses the Savannah's most famous and photographed fountain. A busy place every day of the week, with locals taking a lunch break in the park and families picnicking and playing Frisbee with their dogs on the weekends, this park feels like a huge family backyard but is...

Sits among the historic mansions a beautiful expansive park and fountain. Wait til spring when the azaleas are in bloom will be beautiful pictures worthy of selling. Enjoy an ice cream from the truck that sits at the end of the oak canopied walkway blowing bubbles and playing old southern classics such as the Ole Suwanee river song. So cute!

Nice park, very green. A section had wide open green space for kids to run around. Another section had a lot of shady trees and benches. We saw a fountain that kids were playing in to cool off.

Do not miss this park The fountain alone makes the hike from parking worth it. We actually came upon a wedding party having their photos done there. It was spectacular. People bring their dogs to the park in droves, and walk the lanes all the time. The huge oak trees draped in Spanish moss are amazing.

What an absolutely beautiful park! The architecture of the homes that surround it give the whole experience that southern touch. The fountain alone is beauty in itself. Be careful of the locals trying to take pictures as they are looking for a tip. Highly recommend taking a stroll and take in the beauty.

Gorgeous!!! But beware of allowing the "locals" to take your picture with your camera or phone. We had a gentleman take our pic with my phone despite my husbands protests...I didn't want to be rude. He grudgingly gave back my phone & then proceeded to offer tourism advice & then....give his spiel of his homelessness & need for $. Awkward... More

The size is amazing considering it is in the middle of town. The landscaping and the fountain are gorgeous. The homes surrounding this area are magnificent.
