Beautiful park with space for dogs to run, play football and lay in hammock. Has a cafe in the center and a garden. On Saturday mornings there’s a farmers market. Great place to soak up some rays.

This 30-acre park features a gorgeous cast-iron fountain and the paths are lined with huge trees dripping with Spanish Moss. It's a beautiful place to spend the afternoon!

Just around the corner from The Little Yellow Townhouse, this park has beautiful fountains, including an interactive fountain for families with children. Local farmer's market here every Saturday, as well. Coffee shop and organic market, both locally owned, on the south end - grab a coffee or ice cream and stroll through this beautiful Savannah landmark.

Forsyth Park is a very large and beautiful park. The history surrounding the park is super fun to learn, and it's a great place for walking, playing pick-up games of different field sports, and exercise groups. It's also just a beautiful place to take the photos. You can't go wrong with those gorgeous oaks and Spanish moss!

One of the best places to go just to 'get away from it all and relax. The fountain is spectacular in all seasons.

A gem of a public park in a city filled with beautiful public parks. A great place to stroll among the ancient oaks, Its worth visiting the picturesque fountain and statues commemorating Southern heroes. Kids will love the playground with some unique musical equipment. Hosts public performances as well as the weekly farmers market (great place to buy famous Georgia peaches in the summer and local honey)

Beautiful park in a slightly more quiet and residential area of Savannah. Beautiful to walk around, made even more special by the Spanish moss on all of the trees. For those who had been wandering the city by foot, there is also a visitor center in the park with a bathroom and cafe. A must see part of Savannah because it is so pretty.

Not only does this park contain the most photographed icon fountain of Savannah, it hosts regular 5k runs, free, well attended and world renown jazz festivals and all kinds of family fun. Great for a stroll and the playground is popular for the little tykes.

A great place for family time on the weekends! Bring a towel and lay out on the extensive lawn or let the kids play on the playground. Always some sort of even going on on the weekends from children's book fairs to music festivals.

Perfect place to relax and enjoy a warm Savannah day! Rent bikes, run, enjoy the farmers market on most Sunday's and a little history too. This is also an iconic place for weddings right in front the the Forsyth Fountain, just in case you're looking...

Forsyth Park is like the beating heart of Savannah - not only is it in the center of the city, it's the center for activity in the city as well. With walking paths, sporting fields, gardens and plenty of open space, this park sees a myriad of activity. The tree-lined walkways exude a charm that is contagious, you won't be able to help but smile.
