Troup Square was established in 1851 and named after Georgia governor, George Troup. The square features a modern sculpture. It also has a small dog fountain which is the site of the annual Blessing of the Animals.

Walked by this square a few times and liked the unique architectural design of the sphere in the center of it. Nothing amazing besides that but the fact that this is yet, another square in a city that has plenty.

This square, laid out in 1851, is named after a former Georgia Governor. At the center of the square is an "armillary sphere." This device was used to track celestial orbits. Here, in Troup Square, this sculpture acts as a sundial.

The large Armillary Sphere is a prominent feature displayed in this beautiful park. It is an eye - catching exhibition. Anybody interested in astrology will surely appreciate it. I did! Dogs will appreciate their water fountain... We thought the Troupe Square was worth a visit...

Savannah has set the bar high for other cities to follow suit on keeping the downtown area green. This is another beautiful square to visit in Historical Savannah.

I am frequent visitor to Savannah and, after Forsyth, this is my favorite square. It helps that it is farther from the River area so only locals and savvy visitors are ever there. One of my favorite restaurants, Firefly Cafe, is on this square and...More

I may be partial as this is my square but it is very well landscaped with pleasant benches and a dog fountain - a nice place to sit and relax for a while.
