This is a delightful square full of history and interesting facts from the past. It is good to sit in the park and enjoy the relaxation. Very well maintained park.

We visited the place because it is the square where Forrest Gump movie was shot. However, if you want to find any reference to the movie you will be disappointed. There are no signs, and the bench used in the movie is not actually there.

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.

True...it's most famous for a visitor (Forrest Gump), but you will not find the bench here (it's at the Savannah History Museum). This was our first trip to Savannah, thus I was disappointed to find that many icons that were once public are now housed...More
