The famous fountain is the perfect photo opp. Beautiful park. I can't get enough of the oak trees with the Spanish moss. They scream Georgia and they are just so pretty to look at. There is just something about Savannah, Georgia that feels so right. Can't put into words the beauty, friendliness, and fun of this famous city.

Lovely park and well maintained. Gorgeous fountain but I was uncomfortable sitting there due to the bugs that I did not see but could feel them biting. Lots of trees with the moss hanging down (the moss was brought in in the 1700's). This moss is what have the bugs in them.

It was wonderful to see so many people using and enjoying this park on a Sunday afternoon. Many different activities were going on--dog walking, playing catch., volleyball, strolling, picnicking, kids enjoying swings, etc. The snack and visitors center is very nice with nice workers. Check out all the unique old trees.

Take some time to relax and unwind. While on a trolley tour we decided to get off and have a look around, and of course take a photo of the fountain. After we did the typical tourist thing we realized that we could just kick back and relax for a little bit and that is what we did. At the... More

Beautiful park to sit and people watch, read a book or just relax with friend. Nice benches in the shade or sun along with walking paths and grass to enjoy!

We stopped off the trolley. We walked around as they were cleaning up after a fun run. Even with all that noise there was enough park to stroll quietly. I could have spent the rest of the afternoon there but we had to move on. Wedding pictures were being taken. I spotted a minor celebrity as a little special perk.

Absolutely beautiful park, fountain is gorgeous. We didn't have kids with us but wow was there a very impressive play park for kids, I don't know how you'd ever get little ones away from park.

The park while fairly large is easily manageable for those with generally good mobility. The walks are shaded by large, stately oaks and the locals take advantage during weekends for a variety of activities and wedding photo shoots by the fountain. The fountain is beautiful and a visit to check it off the "To Do" list of Savannah is obligatory.... More

Exactly what a good town park should be. There is good security, ample people everywhere doing a variety of leisurely activities. A great area!

This is on most "to do" lists but it is well worth the trip over to see this iconic fountain in a very nice park. Bring a picnic, there are plenty of benches shaded by the canopy of oaks. Great people watching as well. Stay as little or as long as you like but it is definitely a beautiful respite... More
