Savannah’s largest and best park, Forsyth Park, marks the end of the Historic District. This urban playground has a 1.1 mile sidewalk loop frequented by runners, bikers and pet owners that stays shaded thanks to the huge oak trees lining the exterior loop. Inside, ultimate Frisbee, rugby, and volleyball teams play pickup while SCAD students sprawl out on blankets to study and work on their tan simultaneously. Forsyth is also home to many free concerts, a weekly Forsyth Farmers' Market and several festivals, and one of the most photographed landmarks in Savannah sits in the middle—the Forsyth Park fountain, where the water is dyed green for St. Patrick’s Day. Arguably, Savannah’s 22 squares are also amazing little parks, each with their own defining characteristics like unique fountains, statues, and beautiful foliage.
