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.

Forsyth Park reviews
We stayed at an AirBNB near the park and walked thru the park each evening. We had lovely weather and enjoyed this beautiful park.

Like all of Savannah, very dog-friendly, except I didn't notice any water or dog fountains. Otherwise, really cool location for a stroll.

Very nice park. Plenty of historical objects and much much history at this place. Sitting on one of the benches during the day should be the favorite pastime of any man because hundreds of beautiful women from scad and the surrounding neighborhoods come to walk it's shady sidewalks or jog past in tight clothing truly a great place for a man. Then there is the greatest place in the park. It's the enclosed garden where you can sneak in and catch a tile or have a trust with one of the aforementioned Savannah lovelies. All in all a good experience and a good place
Wonderful park to stroll through and see beautiful scenery. Very calm & relaxing. There were some musicians in the street playing their saxophones & it added to the atmosphere. The fountain is beautiful up close. Not too many people around either! It can get busy around the fountain when people are trying to take pictures. I do suggest doing your research on where to park before going. It was hard to find a good parking spot near the park.
