As many others before me have written, Forsyth is a must-see park in Savannah. If you're staying in the historic district, there's no reason not to take a stroll through the park. Bikers are required to walk their bikes through certain areas of the park as well, so that make it quite pedestrian-friendly. You might have a few people offering... More

Very pretty tree lined sidewalks with the moss hanging from them and the fountain was pretty with the sun glistening off the water spouting out of the statues. I also liked it because it was one of the few parks that didn't have pan handlers.

Forsyth Park has something for everyone. It's got one of the most beautiful fountains at it's center and wide open spaces for sporting games like rugby or Frisbee tossing, was well as quiet benches among the large live oak trees. Catch a concert on the lawn in front of the band shell or grab a coffee and light fare in... More

Forsyth Park is directly across the street from the Mansion (stayed there several years ago) and we recently walked a bit into the park on our recent visit. Took the Old Town Trolley tour and stopped to take pictures of the fountain - I know it's from a catalogue! Still lovely and a break from the tour - which is... More

This is a safe park even into the evening. Good lighting. Nice Walking Paths. Clean. Historic large oak trees. Don't forget to visit the local farmers market in the park on Saturdays. Have a picnic!

beautiful park and the fountain is absolutely gorgeous. Hard to believe this was a mail order fountain. Can you imagine how it must have came to them.

Forsyth Park is the epitome of Savvah. Huge, ancient oak trees covered in moss, history, charm. I have been to Savannah a few times, but this last time we had a drink at Collins Quarter, then walked to Forsyth Park at night. The charm at night is second to none. Walk through the squares to get to Forsyth and soak... More

The rose garden was worth the trip to Forsyth Park. The rose parfume was incredible. Seeing the iconic fountain is a have to see when in Savannah.

This park would be a showpiece for any city. Large and welcoming, with lots of seating and beautiful live oaks. Go here when you tire of walking the city, bring an outdoor lunch from many of the gourmet food shops in the area. An oasis of calm.

This was a lovely park with a beautiful fountain, playground for children and lots of trees covered with Spanish Moss. There was also a great bathroom and snack bar in a nice/clean air conditioned building.
