We made a quick stop at Forsyth Park to check it out. It is a fairly large park located in the center of the historic district. One half of the park contains trees with Spanish moss you find common in Savannah providing plenty of shade. The other half looked to be open fields where you could play soccer, football or... More

This is the major park you see in all the magazines and think of when you see pictures of Savannah. A beautiful fountain in the square. Beautiful trees. A perfect picture opportunity. Don't miss it!

It boasts a nice little restaurant and large stage for open air concerts, the Forsyth Park Fountain is worth bringing a camera for. Large lawn for games, picnicking, sitting on a bench or laying out a blanket to enjoy the scene. Biking is allowed in most areas, dismount in pedestrian zones.

We followed advice from a local and came to check out the farmers market on Saturday morning. Great people watching and fun treats to try- like chocolate stout ice cream. The tree canopies that shade the walk to the fountain are lovely. Get a fresh juice from the natural food store across the street and grab a bench while you... More

Take a step back in time in Savannah. The parks are gorgeous. I've been there in spring and summer. Really nice to see the different flowers. Take a tour right away to learn the history. Then take your time strolling and enjoying.

Forsyth Park is a nice little park with enough space to enjoy a number of activities. There is a large field to play on, relax on or to let the kids run wild. There is also a playground for kids, a cafe to grab something to drink or eat. Enough scenery to to take some wonderful pictures for the photographer... More

The first thing we noticed was the wonderful trees as we drove around trying to find a parking spot. There was a Farmers Market going on so we didn't find any spots at the park. We parked a few streets over on the street side and really enjoyed the walked to the park with all the Fantastic old buildings. We... More

Large park area. There is a wonderful cafe there and a Saturday farmer's market. People were having a birthday party, others were playing frisbee football, people were riding bicycles or jogging and there were the most amazing homes around the perimeter.

I love how open it was, and there was a cafe in the center! The park had a very laid back feel to it. Also there is a lot of really nice fountains and statues with in the park.
