This park was on Savannah's waterfront. It contains the Waving Girl statue, and the 1996 Olympic Yachting Cauldron. The Georgia Queen River Boat passed by. We parked behind the Olde Harbour Inn (metered parking) and it was about a 5 minute walk here.

It's a strip of grass really, with a sidewalk and a couple of benches out in front of the River, between the shops and the Homewood Suites. Not much to see.

We got off the free ferryboat near this six times. The tour buses like to park beside it so the tourists can walk and shop around River Street. It is a place to reflect on the history of Savannah. It is worth stopping at.
