This such a beautiful huge park, you can walk the paths or sit and read in front of the gorgeous fountain.Theres lots of open spaces to enjoy a game of Frisbee or other outside activities. There is a very nice splash pad for warmer weather. Would love to picnic there.

We really liked this park. It has a beautiful fountain on the north end of the park. The park itself is not all that large so you can walk around it in a half hour. We were there in February but it was about 70 degrees the first day we were there. It looked like all the locals were out... More

Savannah's Forsyth Park is beautiful. The fountain is gorgeous. A great photo so sphere. The park presents its beauty in each season. Savsnnah's history enhances the charm. We love it!

My Mom and I braved the cold Savannah day to walk the historic district to Forsyth park. It was well worth the effort. The fountain is a spectacular photo op and the park is mystical. We warmed up with hot chocolate at the little cafe on the side. Will return on a warmer day!

We visited Forsyth Park on one of Savannah's coldest days on record! The fountains were iced over, which made for unusual and beautiful picture taking of this well photographed park! We enjoyed the moss draped trees, flowering bushes and reading its many historic markers. It was a great place to visit while having to wait to tour the Mercer House... More

Saturday AM there is a Farmers' Market, park is so large and open - perfect for a stroll or walking the dog. Beautiful pavilion too.

This is a beautiful fountain, made only more interesting when the weather is unexpected, like it was in late February 2015...the water, though flowing full force, froze on the many and various statues sitting in the reflecting pool...

Forsyth Park is a lovely place to relax and people watch. Not much else going on here, but a nice place to just relax and look at the lovely fountain.

Forsyth Park is probably much prettier in April or May, but for a sun-starved New Englander it was wonderful in February, too, with some magnolias blooming and a few blossoms on the azaleas as well. Good place for going jogging, walking a dog, or just plain people watching.
