#Nature / Park, #Must See
Created in the 19th century as part of a beautification project, Forsyth Park contains walking paths, play areas, tennis courts, and a cafe. City planners began this park in the 1840s on a small piece of land designated for public use. Using this plot as the core of their design, they then expanded the park's grounds with land donated by Georgia governor John Forsyth. Named in recognition of Forsyth's contribution to the development of the city, the park now spans over 12 hectares (30 acres) and serves as the focal point of residential areas radiating from this public space. Today it's popular for its free concerts and farmers' market. Use our Savannah online driving holiday planner to arrange your visit to Forsyth Park and other attractions in Savannah.

  • The Crown Jewel of Savannah! I love this park, the fountain, the trees, the sound stage. Many wonderful music fests, the Picnic in the Park, the end of the Color Run, and the Rock and Roll Marathon. Many weddings are done in front if the fountain. People come from all over the world to be here. Lots of good local restaurant options nearby as well as the Mansion across the street.
  • Lots to do in Savannah. A must see is Forsyth park. To many memorials there to name here. Take the Savannah motor Coach tour. They have a on and off pass. You can get off at any of there 16 stops around Savannah. We when in late March all the azaleas are where in full bloom. The temperature in late March in Savannah is comfortable for walking around.
  • A great big green space in Savannah. Large fields for sports or lounging or picnics and a terrific playground for The kiddos! The playground has lots of different elements for the kids to explore and try out and things are nicely kept as well. This can also be a great spot for some family photos with the iconic fountain as well. Great spot to check out, even if just passing through.
  • Beautiful place to relax & spend time with friends/family. No entry fee. Have rest rooms. Went on a Saturday morning this spring. Full of people, kids playing, some sports, yoga, many relaxing under d sun, many walking there dogs. very lively place.
  • Very fun vibe. I highly recommend bringing a blanket and a picnic with you. Or a drone. We flew there without any problems and saw a few other folks who were out flying at the same time. (Disclaimer, make sure to check for updated no-fly zones before flying. They change all the time.)
