“Spanish moss is gorgious even though chiggers call moss home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

Our hotel bordered the park which is huge, relaxing and great for people watching and picture taking. The park itself is very historical and several amusing stories have been told about the Spanish moss which is not Spanish at all. In the early days the moss was gathered to stuff mattresses and Henry Ford even used the moss to stuff car seats. Inhabitants of Savannah quickly learned that chiggers inhabited the moss hence " don 't let the bed bugs bite" and chiggers in the car seats actually multiplied. Now everyone admires moss from afar.

“Beautiful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

My granddaughter loved the playground at the park. The fountain was beautiful. I enjoyed sitting on the benches enjoying the scenery and the rose garden. Enjoyed a wonderful lunch at the Cafe at Forsyth Park.

“Beautiful relaxing and great for the family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

We were visiting from Oregon and our daughter played on the swing sets her first time on a swing. The fountain is beautiful and so relaxing and peaceful in the park. Highly recommend as a must go see while you are in Savannah.

Largest and most beautiful park with the fountain! Great place to take pictures and just rest. Also great for people watching. Many activities, like zumba class and a farmer's market. Lots to do!
