Morrell Park is scenic park located on the Savannah River in the RIver District of Savannah. Morrell Park is the only park in Savannah on the river and contains the statue of The Waving Girl. Jolly Chris.

I walked to Morrell Park to get a closer look at the statues located there (seen from a tour bus) The park is right on the river and has a great view of the River Street area as well as the Savannah River. The two sculptures on the park are included on the city tour buses, one of which we took through that area.

The first statue remembers the "Waving Girl" who was known to have waved to all the ships entering the harbor for many years during her life.

The second statue is not really a statue but is the 1996 Olympic Cauldron that was lit during the yachting events held on the Savannah River during the Atlanta Olympics.

There is a walkway along the riverfront that offers beautiful views of the river and the distant shoreline and the Talmadge Memorial Bridge.

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.

Morrell Park is the only Savannah park that’s right on the river. It’s home to two statues.. Savannah’s famous Waving Girl, honoring Florence Martus, and the cauldron that was lit for the Olympic yachting events, held in Savannah in 1996. Beautiful park with amazing views of the river and Talmadge Memorial Bridge. Great place to relax, people watch, or just take some photos. Don't miss the Georgia Queen riverboat that's docked nearby. Highly recommended!
