Visiting Forsyth Park: Savannah, Georgia

Nya Crea

Visiting Forsyth Park in Savannah, Georgia is a must-do for any visitor to the city. To help you plan your visit, here are some of the things that make it a beautiful site to visit.

This park is one of the most iconic spots in Georgia since 1840, one of its most recognizable characteristics is probably the fountain and the moss on the oak trees and the romantic benches contribute to its romantic feel.

This stunning place has an absolutely gorgeous sight of trees, flowers and bushes. You'll see all kinds of different greens, from spring greens to summer and autumn colours to winter greens. The flowers are beautiful too: daisies, dahlias, roses and many more varieties can be found here.

It was designed by Georges H. Bignault, whose design is named in honour of Thomas H. Forsyth, son of William C. Forsyth and brother to George W. Masters, both great Savannah city founders.

The park was created in 1840 at the direction of the City Council to be used for public gatherings and picnics. The Southern plantation landscape theme was retained until 1940 when a new layout was created.

The names of the original owners are inscribed on plaques beside the fountain in this park: 

Masters family: James and Louisa Masters; Thomas J. Forsyth; George W. Masters; Lucy Kingsley; George R Marshall; John Moore Parks; William C.

The park boasts over 30 acres and it contains a memorial of the Spanish war: The Hiker, which is a statue created by Theo Alice Ruggles Kitson in the early twentieth century.

It was built in honour of those who served in the Spanish–American War and today, the statue represents the sacrifice of all who have served their country.

Bike riders who use the park will find plenty of places to lock up their bicycles for a little while. There are plenty of covered areas so visitors don't have to worry about rain showers ruining their day, they can simply find a spot under one of the roofed areas and enjoy their time there.

The park offers special events throughout the year as well as everything else you would expect from such an interesting place.

Visitors can sit on a bench or just relax on the grass while they enjoy feeling the wind blow around in this friendly space.

Forsyth Park is considered to be among the finest in the entire country. Once you have had a chance to visit it you will most certainly understand why there are so many people who love this site. Visitors will be able to enjoy the gorgeous view of the city from here as well.

It's a great place to spend a day with your family because this place offers plenty of places for everyone to get together.

We love how there are many areas that are handicap accessible and there is also additional parking located in the back. The quality of landscaping in this park is also very impressive and it all adds up to make you want to visit again and again!

This is an ideal place for planning weddings, family reunions and other special events. It is also a great destination for different types of cultural shows and festivals. The Forsyth Park website offers plenty of information on all of the different events held there.

There is a small charge for adults who wish to play golf at the public course that is located in Forsyth Park. Children are able to play here without any cost, however, they have to be accompanied by an adult who does not wish to play golf themselves.
