“Fountain”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

This is a nice but average square with a benches and lots of shade. It wasn't on our list of squares to see since there are like 22 or more squares in Savannah and didn't want to go out of our way to see incidental ones. But this one was in area we walked by and so walked through it. The majority of squares we visited were well maintained and shady. Only one, this one, were we approached by a homeless man asking for change. He was very polite though and we talked briefly with him. He was grateful for a few dollars and thanked us and walked on. We saw him approach another group of people in the same square but again it was only one and he was not harassing at all and was pleasant with conversation in the middle of the day.

“Nice Square on the lower tier”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

there are so many beautiful squares to visit in Savannah it is difficult to see them all and the Franklin Square should be considered a lower tier visit unless time is not an issue. park benches and not much else to attract the visitor. Easy parking around the square.

“Homeless Hangout”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2013

Certain times of the day are pretty depressing which is a shame as the location is central and close to everything. If they could just clean up the homeless and the loiterers hanging around it would be very pleasant.
