Again Savannah is such a beautiful city and this park is a must see as are all the squares. Beautiful fountain and the oaks are like canopies above you. Must be lovely when the azaleas and the magnolias are out.

Forsyth Park is nice but not that much prettier than other parks I've visited. Maybe it's just all the pictures that make it seem so special so I was disappointed when I got there.

Savannah is the city of Parks, however, Forsyth is the King of parks. With wide open spaces, trees lined with spanish moss, walking areas and cool shady places. This is just the place to relax, read or meet friends. It was excellent and embodies the cool vibe of the place.

You really don't have to go out of your way to see this park, which is the largest in the historic district. It is right in the middle of everything, so you might as well. The fountain is gorgeous, there is a rose garden and a monument (of course). On the weekends there is a farmer's market and other activities... More

Loved the morning we spent in the park! It is a good mix of locals/tourists. Great for people watching and a nice walk. Lots of history in the park. An absolute MUST SEE!
