Forsyth Park

A water spring surrounded by trees in Forsyth Park near River Street Inn

This 30-acre park is bordered on the north by Gaston Street, on the south by Park Avenue and has a one-mile perimeter, making it a popular stop for outdoor enthusiasts. The park’s north end is home to a cast iron fountain that was erected in 1858. Notably, the famed Forsyth Park Fountain was designed to resemble the grand fountain in Paris at the Place de la Concorde. An exact replica of the Forsyth Park Fountain resides in Cuzco, Peru. The park is also adorned by monuments to the Confederate Soldier, the Marine Corps Monument and the Fragrant Garden for the Blind. In addition, the Forsyth Park Fountain is one of the most popular attractions for Savannah visitors.
