A perfect spot for a romantic walk - if you are there in the summer, however, be sure to go early or late, as the humidity during the height of the day can be quite oppressive.

Just a wonderful park with beautiful foliage and historic plaques and monuments to a bye gone era. The local denizens who inhabit the park are interesting as well---willing to share stories and brighten your day.

Forsyth Park is a big park that has a wonderful fountain, old and big trees, lots of shade and walking paths, benches, and it is home of a Fragrant Garden (that was created for the blinds to help develop their senses). There is much more to do in the park as well. There is a system of light at night... More

Farmer's Market, beautiful fountain, awesome oaks, live sidewalk music from local musicians --- Forsyth Park had all the ingredients to make it a worthwhile point of interest on our family's pedestrian stroll through Savannah!

Such a pretty park. The fountain at the end of a tree-lined walkway is so picturesque. A really lovely and relaxing walk. Easy walking distance from the main downtown area

The majestic live oak trees with the Spanish moss make the park a must see attraction. In previous reviews there were comments about panhandlers, but we did not have a problem. Signs are posted to report panhandlers.

Lovely park in historic District. So nice to walk through here. We walked through here after going to Mercer House. There is a building that is a cafe. There are restrooms. Nice to sit on a bench and enjoy.

Enjoyed looking out over this park as we traveled back and forth through the streets of Savannah. The cafe is also a nice feature.
