This is park is a must visit, only because it’s the location where Forest Gump has the chocolates. Tons of people go here just for that. Almost all the parks in Savanna look the same by the way. Parking is tough (everywhere) but the best...More

Another of the beautiful squares located in Savannah. Lots of benches to sit and relax while enjoying the sites & sounds of Savannah. This was one of the first we seen while walking to the river.

The park bench from the movie is here and we met Forrest Gump on the trolley ride. He hopped on the bus and told us stories. It was so unexpected!

This square is where they filmed the famous bench/box of chocolates scene in the movie. The "Old Savannah Tours" Trolley has actors at many of their stops. At this stop is Forrest Gump.

It is small and comfy. It is most central in the distirct with access from the river and all the other squares. There is art, a monument, music and lots of beautiful surrounding sites.

This is the place where his bench was located in the movie, and where he sat while the famous “ feather” floated down to him. Beautiful park, serene, very peaceful.

The famous scene in Forrest Gump was filmed here, but the bench is no longer here. That said, it's a nice little park, in a city filled with these squares/parks. Creates a nice little community vibe around the square with local shops nearby
