This is one of the nicer squares in the Historic district. They are all nice but this one has the location next to the church, grand houses surround, the sounds of the water from the fountain and the live oaks overhead. Sit in this park...More

I would recommend any and all of the squares in the Historic District. I loved the fountain and just the peaceful vibe.

After a while you can get fairly blaise about the many squares in Savannah, but this one is also well kept and pleasant.

Beautiful. Historic. Tranquil. Photogenic. The squares in Savannah are not to be missed! We stopped by during our self-guided tour and read all of the plaques and tried our best to enjoy the historic energy of this beautiful square. Got some great photos too!

Really enjoyed our Tour guides information about the different Savannah Squares that we visited. I highly recommend this park as one you visit and it's much more informative when you are part of a tour with a knowledgeable Tour Guide.
