A beautiful fountain, relaxing shaded benches and the enjoyable activities reminiscent of bygone days in other cities.

The trees, the surrounding houses, the winding pathways. The fountain... It was all just superb. Really special. We went right before sunset. Parked nearby for free... It was a tues night. Took our toddler to the size appropriate jungle gym. Which was a super bonus because we didn't know they had it. It was beautiful. As the sun was gone... More

We loved how Savannah was laid out with their 24 squares leading into Forsyth Park. It's so nice to see how this city takes care of their parks and monuments.

The park is beautiful and the fountain is a great place to take picture. Park offers lots of shade in the hot weather and lots of benches to people watch.

This park did not disappoint. We parked near the park and took our time wandering through - even with the 95+ degree heat. We could have lingered longer if the lure of the waterfront for lunch hadn't been calling. A must see and stop!

This park is just one of several beautiful parks in the historic district. Beautiful large old oaks, lots a of shade, and benches to sit and cool off to take in all the beauty of the Victorian homes, the Forsyth Fountain. The only negative I can say is in this park and the "squares" there were homeless people hanging out... More

I visited Savannah and Forsyth Park with my three dogs. It was such a nice place to walk even in the middle of August. Plenty of shade.

If you take orange/green trolley get off at stop 5 and walk this park. We went back again as it was one of the highlight of our visit to Savanna.
