Savannah’s Crown Jewel

Trustees’ Garden Club in partnership with the City of Savannah has undertaken a multi-year project to develop a Master Plan for the park and to apply to the National Park Service for recognition of the park as a National Historic Landmark. This effort is called the Forsyth Park Project. The cost of the project will be paid for in full by Trustees’ Garden Club and the generous support of civic partners.
