Come see where scenes of the movie Forrest Gump were filmed. The bench scene was filmed on this spot. Lovely place to sit and while away the hours people watching.

The whole of Savannah has been used in many different films, this square is famous for its association with Forrest Gump and the bench scene. The square has spaces to sit and reflect and it is a great place to spend time
