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...

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.
