“Beautiful Fountain Especially at Night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

Definitely stop by the park after dusk to see its beautiful fountain all lit up. The fountain is similar to an existing fountain in Paris, France.

“A walk in the Park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

When visiting Savannah, Forsyth Park is a must. This park is a very good size and there are some things to see and check out while your there, such as the amazing fountain. Plenty of trees help to provide shade if you want to take a break and there are picnic areas to that afternoon lunch.

“sunday morning in Forsyth Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

I walked to Forsyth Park on a Sunday morning. I was amazed at how large and beautiful it was. It is across the street from The Mansion, which is worth a visit as well. There was a lot of activity and quite a few visitors in the park. I sat and listened to a gentleman playing the guitar and singing a Tracy Chatman song. A homeless gentleman pointed out some things about the park, places to see in the area, as well as some places to see downtown. The neighborhood felt really safe, and everyone I encountered was friendly. The park has a stage, monuments, a splash fountain for the kids, a snack bar, and plenty of seating for just relaxing. Forsyth park is a must see when in historic Savannah.

“Beautiful Park, Perfect for a Walk or Run”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

The park is beautiful with it's monuments and the gorgeous fountain. It also has a nice cafe, a playground for the kids and a fragrant garden. The walkways canopied by huge live oaks covered in Spanish moss give it a majestic beauty.

“Worth the walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

We decided to visit Forsyth Park since we heard that they had a farmers market on Saturdays. We walked about 1.3 miles to the park from our hotel and were able to see a bunch of beautiful homes along the way. It was worth the walk, even though it was getting warm and was humid. The park itself was a great city park with old trees, green space for playing or lounging, pretty fountain, kids park and great walking paths. If you can go on Saturday morning and stop at the farmers market and pick up some pecans, ginger products, and veggies.
