Forsyth Park Fountain Savannah Ga

A Touch of Paris, Redux

Designed in the 18th century by Gen. James Oglethorpe, as part of his master plan for Savannah, the 30-acre Forsyth Park is bordered by Park Avenue on the south and by Gaston Street on the north.

The romantic Forsyth Park Fountain sits in the north end of the park and is one of the most popular attractions for visitors to Savannah. The Forsyth Park Fountain was installed in 1858 and was designed to recall the Parisian fountain located at the Place de la Concorde. Following several repairs and renovations necessitated by damage related to weather, aging and vandalism, the Forsyth fountain was completely restored in 1988.
