In a town with many beautiful city squares, this was the least attractive. Many homeless and other sketchy characters hanging around. Located right next to City Market but keep walking and find more pleasant spots.

I walked by Ellis Square twice during my visit to Savannah in June 2021. It is near the pedestrian zone and City Market. It is kind of sterile when compared to all of Savannah's other squares. I would not make a special trip to see this square but if it is part of your walking route than it is OK.

This park checks all of the boxes when you are wandering Old Savannah with kiddos! There's plenty of history, shops, music, food, and ... fountains to splash around in! After square after square, and streets with old trees covered in Spanish Moss, the kids were looking for something to appeal to them. The splash park hit the spot, especially to wet and rejuvenate for more walking and wandering on a hot day.

The city has a lot of squares. This one has a lot less trees than the others. It’s a nice open space. It’s cool that they kept all the squares and didn’t name buildings in.

Unlike most of the other squares I have seen, this square is "barren," just about completely devoid of trees. There is a fountain for kids to run through, but it wasn't on when we were there. Not a particularly attractive square, compared to others.

We were headed to the City Market and passed through this square. It's notable for live music at many times and there is a fountain. `it's not the most beautiful square, but it may be the most lively.

You haven’t been to historic Savannah if you haven’t walked through the squares. Most of the squares are beautiful, and covered in love oaks. Ellis square is more open, but still very nice.

Located at the end of the market street, you can’t miss it.

My only critique, and it’s all over Savannah, is the number of homeless. Way too many.
I don’t mind them there, but the pan handling is getting out of control. Really makes you feel u easy after dark with them all laying in the shadows. Some are quite aggressive and vulgar. Keep your distance, but enjoy the squares nonetheless.

The park is virtually an extension of City Market. Get yourself a coffee and sit on one of the shaded benches in the park. Sit back and start watching the people. If you're with one or more you can do the guessing game, by guessing where people are from.
It's also a great place for kids, plus it has public bathrooms. As to cleanliness it's a hit or miss (literally it appears) on whether they have just been cleaned or not. We heard it's also a popular hang out for local homeless, but we didn't see any, at least not during the day. You can't miss the park when you visit City Market. There's often live music, but it must have been bad timing on our part, as there was none when we visited.

I will never look at Savannah the same! We had the pleasure of staying at the Andaz, Which is on the square, during our trip to Savannah. It was a great choice as there was much to walk to. Restaurants, bars, tourist attractions all come together to make Ellis Square a great gathering place. This is a must when visiting Savannah. It is the center wolf the market place which draws crowds of all kinds, couples, family and friends.

This park was right outside the hotel where we were staying. It had plenty of benches upon which to sit and relax while contemplating the next attraction to see.
