Walked the dog from the Foley Hotel to here. Iconic. Not all of the spouts were working but great to look at none the less. Live the trees with the hanging moss during the walk.

This park is large with lots of open area to kick or throw a ball around. I highly recommend the farmers market that's open on Saturday.

We spent some time here wandering around and had a picnic lunch while walking around the historic district. Very much reminds me of Lincoln Park in DC! Wonderful place to spend a few hours!

This is a beautiful park, filled with Spanish Moth tress. A lovely fountain in the middle. Great playground for children as well.

Busy and wonderful green space that is worth the walk from the downtown tourist hustle and bustle. Suitable for all ages and pet friendly. A cafe is on site as are other amenities. The Fountain and the history in this area is well worth your visit. So much to see between here and downtown that you may want to schedule... More

Savannah is a quaint historic city but most of it's parks are minuscule intended originally to serve the surrounding square of a few streets but Forsyth is the sole exception covering 30 acres with every feature of a large park from football fields to kid's playgrounds to great walking areas for you & your Dog . The streets surrounding this... More

We walked the length of the park and back on a lovely sunny day. It was very pleasant. Many families had pick-nicks and played ball games etc. Good, green and clean open spaces for kids to run around and, of course, lovely big oak trees and the famous fountain. I don't think it is a park of great outstanding beauty... More

When in Savannah you must travel through the Historic District. We did three types of tours and can highly recommend all three ways. Old Savannah Tours and Carriage Tours of Savannah were EXCELLENT choice for going by the fountain. Old Savannah Tours you can actually get off the ride and go take photos. There was some minimal overlapping information but... More

Definitely a must see. We went during the day but fountain appears to have lights so we will be back tonight to view again. Love the history! Also a 300+ year old Oak Tree in the Park area.
