Forsyth Park is a good destination if you're vacationing in Savannah. It's far enough to provide a good leg-stretching, but close enough that walking there, and around it, won't exhaust you for the rest of the day. The DOT (free shuttle) is a half block away (at Hall & Goodwin).
Walking around the perimeter provides a free tour of historic homes, and the Candler Oak, a 300 year-old tree with its own plaque (recommended).
The best part of the park is the Lafayette McLaws Confederate Memorial. You just don't see this type of landscape architecture anymore. The sculpture is good, too.
If you get hungry, or need to pee, there's the Cafe at Forsyth Park (a cafeteria in the middle of the park which didn't look like a place you'd put on your itinerary, but is probably good in an emergency).
At the south end of the park is a natural foods store and deli (Brighter Day Natural Foods). Two blocks to the east is a Kroger. So if you need picnic supplies, a bottle of wine ... or just dislike eating every single vacation meal in a restaurant, that's good to know.
