Forsyth Park

One of the reasons that Savannah is named “The Most Beautiful City in America” is because of the many parks! Forsyth Park has become one of the most popular places to visit in Savannah and for good reason. Not only is it breathtaking even on a rainy day, the fountain at the north end of the park is reminiscent of fountains in the Place de la Concorde in Paris and in Cuzco, Peru!

Forsyth Park’s 30 acres is open year-round and is located in Savannah’s Historic District. It has long been the scene of Civil War re-enactments and a spot where famous movies have been filmed such as Forest Gump and Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.

The beauty of Forsyth Park is second to none and has become the backdrop for countless pictures, weddings, and fun times spent with family and friends!
