Forsyth Park Fountain
The iconic fountain in Forysth Park is a famous attraction in Savannah as the Statue of Liberty is in New York. It’ll be on the best spots to take a photograph of your family or friends who are with you enjoying your vacation.

This small, ornate fountain is a rich dark green and sits right at the center of Columbia Square. Worth a visit for more photos and its also nearby other tourist attractions such as the Isaiah Davenport House and Colonial Park Cemetery.
Layfayette Square Fountain
All of the fountains are small in comparison to the Forsyth Park Fountain and the one at the center of Lafayette Square is no different. It is noticeably taller than the Wormsloe fountain. In early March, it is not unusual to see this fountain dyed green in honor of St. Patrick’s Day which is celebrated on March 17th. A trip to this fountain will take you near The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, another highlight of Savannah.
German Memorial Fountain in Orleans Square
This one is perhaps the smallest of all the fountains we’ve listed so far. Its just a few blocks south of Telfair Square and within walking distance of City Market where you can find lunch or dinner.
Dancing Water Fountains in Ellis Square
Well its not a fountain you can see but you can see the multiple streams of water that are propelled into the air. This one might be the favorite fountain on our list that kids will enjoy seeing. There's a lot of family friendly restaurants too that are nearby Ellis Square. So a trip here right before or right after a bite to eat will make the kids happy.
