Walking among the beautiful trees that reach out to the sky as If to say "look at me" was relaxing and a photographer's dream! Now let's talk about the spectacular Fountain. One of the most photogenic in the Nation and I am so happy I took the Rome to visit it! Words cannot express .

This park is a must if you are visiting Savannah. We spent a couple hours here and at the cemetery. Love this city. We go as often as we can.
