Forsyth Park Tours

star-5

Forsyth Park
Forsyth Park, in the middle of historical downtown Savannah, has been a key city landmark since the mid-1800s. Named after the 33rd governor of Georgia, John Forsyth, who donated 20 acres (8 hectares) of land, the park is known for the large Parisian-style fountain located at the north end and the Spanish moss dripping from the oak trees.

The Basics
No trip to Savannah is complete without a stroll through Forsyth Park. The edges of the 30-acre (12-hectare) park are lined with historical Victorian-era mansions as well as memorials dedicated to the Confederacy and the Spanish-American War. Keep your camera at the ready to capture the park’s postcard-perfect beauty and its 300-year-old oaks.

Many city tours incorporate Forsyth Park into their itineraries. Tour Savannah on foot or via Segway to learn more about its history. For the more adventurous, helicopter tours soar over the city and provide stunning aerial views. Or book a hop-on hop-off bus tour for an easy and convenient way to see the city at your own pace.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Forsyth Park is a must-visit for nature lovers, history buffs, and anyone seeking an atmospheric refuge in downtown Savannah.
  • November to March is quite chilly in Savannah, so be sure to dress warmly when visiting the park.
  • Most guests spend anywhere from two hours to half a day relaxing in the lush greenery.
  • The paths running through Forsyth Park are paved, allowing wheelchairs and strollers to experience the park with ease.

How to Get There
Forsyth Park is located on the southern edge of Savannah’s historic district, about 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) from the Savannah riverfront. Walk or take advantage of the fare-free Forsyth Park shuttle, 7D.

When to Get There
Forsyth Park is lovely year-round. Popular times to visit are late afternoon and evening, and during the farmer’s market held every Saturday along Park Avenue. In summer, the park bustles with events such as the Savannah Jazz Festival and free outdoor movies.

The Confederate Memorial
In the middle of Forsyth Park stands a memorial dedicated to the soldiers who fought for the Confederacy during the American Civil War. The bronze sculpture was added to the park in 1879, fewer than 20 years after Southerners ran combat drills on the very lawns where Forsyth Park now stands.

A guided walking tour is the perfect introduction to downtown Savannah. The historic district is small and cozy enough that you can cover its main attractions while exploring by foot—plus better appreciate its beautiful architecture, riverfront location, and good weather (almost year-round). Stops along the way including the City Market, Broughton Street, and the well-known Forsyth Park Fountain.

Savannah History & House TourHalf-day Tours

Savannah History & House Tour

star-5
This tour includes the complete Historic Savannah History Tour and entrance into the Green-Meldrim House. This house is one of the finest examples of Southern Gothic Revival Architecture in America today. If Savannah had plantation homes to tour, this certainly would be at the top of the list! In use today, as the Parish House for St. John’s church, this is not a museum, which allows you to experience the home. The home features a wraparound porch adorned with ornate ironwork. The most expensive house in Savannah during the 19th century, the details of architecture are amazing. The interior of the home features black walnut woodwork, ornate crown molding, sliding pocket doors, a winding staircase and more. Need a rest? Have a seat on the sofa. During the Civil War in 1864, General Sherman used this house as Headquarters, at the invitation of Charles Green. This tour is the only one in Savannah that includes both History and House.

Touring Savannah by bike is the most efficient way to see the city! Cover a lot of ground, including most of the historic district, with greater efficiency and less fatigue. Enjoy the freedom of exploring the quiet, lesser-known streets that link the well-worn paths. Journey up-close and personal to destinations along the way, stopping for awhile to admire and photograph Savannah’s beauty as you learn of its history. A bike tour is the fittest, greenest way to see any city of course, and for our beautiful and laid-back city, our quiet, fume-free ride is ideal. So, avoid contributing to downtown traffic congestion and noise by pedaling through history!
