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.

  • From the fountain to the great space for activities on the open air, this park is a great place to come and connect in the middle of the Historic district!!

  • Beautiful park for picnics and strolling. There is a lunch restaurant in the park. On Saturday you may find a wonderful vegan friendly farmers market.

  • This park is the home to the most photographed fountain in Savannah. This is a large park with a sense of peace and deep history. The sidewalk circles the outer edge of the park and then cuts through towards the fountain. Lots of people from all.walks of life visits here and simply hang out just to enjoy the energy it emits. Definitely worth the visit.
  • Great park in Savannah. We got there in the morning and it was fairly crowded. Has historical statues. Has a lovely fountain. Has public restrooms and a restaurant and Leopold's ice cream parlor. The one at Broughton st usually has a long queue, so this might be a better option for you if you don't want to wait that long. People were enjoying themselves in the park and it was well maintained. I had a good time!!!
  • Park with an area of 10 Acres. Beautiful and well maintained. This park has a beautiful fountain. We enjoyed our time here. There are many vendors selling paintings, souvenirs etc. This park has children's play area. This park has many seats to sit and relax. The park was crowded during our visit as it was saint Patrick's weekend.A must place to visit in Savannah for a cool atmosphere.
  • I had the opportunity to explore this park while in the Savannah Hilton Head area for a conference a while back. The park is located in the beautiful Savannah Historic District. The park has lots of space and grass area as well as gorgeous Spanish moss trees and a fountain and more. Being in the Historic District Forsyth Park is also just steps away from some historic homes and places. The park and area was a grate place to explore and go for a walk
  • Nice, quiet park. Enjoyed sitting on a bench and just enjoying the calmness of the area. There is a lot of foot traffic during the day but almost no people at night. Lighting is limited so be careful at night if you're alone.
