Having undergone extensive restorations and renovations, the iconic Forsyth fountain still stands proud in Forsyth park, the first large park created in the beautiful historic city of Savannah, Georgia. Installed in 1858, the fountain is thought to be an exact copy of the one in Place de la Concorde square, a famous square in Paris.
In the last year, the Georgia National Guard fort built in 1915 was renovated and expanded to create a combinedVisitors Center/Starbucks/Forsyth Park Cafe replete with a surrounding fountain and retractable band shell for outdoor concerts. Forsyth Park is a perfect place to picnic, enjoy a baseball game or concert or just to wander around and enjoy the beautiful scenery in this lovely area of Savannah.
