|About these ratings|
Go to this 30-acre park in the heart of Savannah's Historic District to relax after a long day of sightseeing. However, you should still keep your camera ready, as there is plenty to see here as well. Stroll past the stunning white-stone Forsyth Fountain, memorials dedicated to the Confederacy and the Spanish-American War, the Fragrant Garden for the Blind and the 300-year-old Candler Oak tree. From the park, you can see several historic sites within walking distance, including Hodgson Hall (home to the Georgia Historical Society) and the old Poor House and Hospital, which was used to treat wounded soldiers during the Civil War.
If you are looking to take a break, Forsyth Park features a beautiful shaded walking path and plenty of open space for picnics. A pool and a playground help keep the kids entertained, while a small café will help to satisfy your appetite.
Forsyth Park is open every day. While you don't have to pay to just hang out here, some of the attractions found within the park may charge an entrance fee.
