Forsyth Park, Savannah

4.7
#1 of 19 in Parks in Savannah
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.

  • Beautiful 30 Acres of green space in the heart of Savannah's Historical District. The park is amazing. It is surrounded by historic homes & churches, massive old oak trees and walkways. The "Fountain" is a wonderful sitting area where you can relax, read or just observe the people & area. Smell & see the Fragrant Garden too. Also they have basketball & tennis courts,children's play areas ETC.. When we were there they were anticipating turning the water GREEN in the fountain to celebrate St.Pats Day.
  • The great love of my downtown experience may very well be Forsyth Park! I adore the gorgeous fountain and stately live oaks which loom over the park. The green spaces beckon barefoot pedestrians, dog-walkers, and picnics! It's perfect for leisurely strolls or getting in shape for a marathon. Several events occur throughout the year, from outdoor concerts to art festivals to sporting events. Newcomers, prioritize this on your "Must-See" list!
