Fountain; oak trees - just a beautiful setting. Definitely worth a visit when you are in Savannah. Nice place to sit, relax, watch people strolling by.

Beautiful fountain, great for pictures. As a bonus, the mattress races were going on that day. What a riot. Only drawback... so many homeless everywhere. Made me sad.

I love the history of the Savannah area- specifically the parks, staues and homes of the historic district. You can sit in Forsyth park and hear the sounds of the city - when the horse drawn carriages are riding around, you can close your eyes and feel like you are transported back in time.

Nice park for a stroll. Beautiful fountain, several historic statues and monuments. Great place to visit if you are in the area. Just watch out during fall break when it can get quite crowded !

Forsyth Park is the site for this annual event's free Thursday through Saturday night concerts. It is a lovely park which allows the Coastal Jazz Association to show off not only this truly American music but do it in a space which shows off Savannah as well!

Beautiful park with a fountain, monuments and many benches to sit on and relax! Nice open lawn too, for games, picnicking, exercising, or whatever else you can think of!

I went here to see the civil war monument/statue. This park has a nice walking path between the fountain and the monument. The path is suppose to be for pedestrians only, however bike riders and skate boarders use it despite the signs indicating it is a walk zone only. Guess it is just the honor system, not like they can... More

One of the better known Savannah's parks. I highly recommend one reads,"Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" before visiting Savannah. This novel will give one insight to the people that lived around Forsyth Park and what it meant to live there.

My mamma told me my magic shoes would take me anywhere...and when you get here you will understand why Forrest Gump just sat on a bench at this beautiful park contemplating his life. A great way to spend the day. The fountain and the spanish moss with beautiful architecture all around it is easy to get swept away for a... More
