This is a beautiful park. It has the nice fountain as well as historic statues. It would be a great place to walk or have a picnic. Unfortunately, it was raining when we were there, but we still walked through it.

What a park. Keep very clean for the use it gets from the many people. Strolling the tree lined paths you can almost see the women in their hoop skirts from the past. Beautiful fountain in the center surrounded by park benches to use just to relax or take in the beauty of it all.

Very spacious with tons of room for picnics, social gatherings or physical activities. Only downside is that it needs a dog park!

This was the largest park we visited in Savannah. Nice stage, coffee shop and grounds. Concerts and other events are frequent here. Much area for children to run and play. Play ground is at the south end of the park.

We are from the north and had an exceptionally brutal winter. When we walked into this park we felt like we were in Eden. 80 degrees, lush grass, foliage and picturesque Spanish moss.

I love walking around here. On Saturday's the Farmer's Market is the best! Sitting by the fountain on a beautiful day with a cup of coffee is the best!

Oh my goodness, what a breath taking vision as you walk the pathway lined with those famous trees into a park full of life ~ from tourist like myself to local families, beautiful weddings, pretty prom couples. And the fountain is amazing.

This is just a beautiful green space. It is usually pretty quiet and it is a good place to just sit and talk. I have played soccer, had picnics, and visited the near by cafe. It isn't a bad place to go running either.
