Doug Beezley Photography | Historic Savannah - Spring 2021 | Forsyth Park & Fountain

Forsyth Park is a large 30 acre park located in the "historic district" of Savannah. It was originally created in the 1840's and is named after Georgia Governor John Forsyth.

Forsyth Fountain is the centerpiece of the park and is likely the most photographed fountain in Savannah if not the entire southeast. The fountain was installed in 1858 and every St. Patrick's Day its waters are turned green in honor of the strong Irish heritage in Savannah. A side note - Savannah's St. Patrick's Day Parade is the second largest in the nation and is surpassed in terms of size only by the one in New York City - upwards of a quarter of a million visitors crowd into Savannah for the festivities.

Forsyth Fountain also has solid cinematic credits having appeared in "The Longest Yard", "Cape Fear", "Forest Gump", "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" and this website.
