Overview

Located in the heart of Savannah's Historic District and named for John Forsyth, a Georgia Governor, this 30-acre park began in 1733 as part of the city's garden plans. A "must" visit for sightseers and a stop on the trolley tour, the crown jewel is the 1858 cast iron fountain at the park's north end, designed to resemble the grand fountain in Paris at the Place de la Concorde. It is dyed green each St. Patrick's Day. The park features memorials from the Spanish American War and the Civil War. Considered the Central Park of Savannah, it has large open areas, playgrounds, tennis and basketball courts, and is a venue for concerts and weddings, all within the beautiful walks of historic oak trees draped in Spanish moss. - Natasha Lawrence
