With St. Patrick’s Day approaching, it’s a good time to go out and visit all the wonderful GREEN places in Savannah that you may or may not have heard of.
1. Daffin Park
Daffin Park is 80 acres of grass with walking paths, a pond, a public pool and sports fields for soccer and football. It’s also home to Grayson Stadium where Savannah’s baseball team – the Savannah Bananas. Daffin also has its very own dog park.
2. Lake Mayer
As Savannah’s most versatile park, it has a number of sports facilities, fitness areas, dog areas and a freshwater lake. If you’re looking for a green place that’s fun for the whole family, this is the park where you can do pretty much any activity you can think of.
3. Skidaway Island State Park
Skidaway State Park has beautiful trails that go through the forest, past marsh lands, to a boardwalk and observation center. It’s the perfect place to admire wildlife, go camping, and explore the wonders of nature.
4. Tom Triplett Park
If your up for taking a trip outside of town for a round of golf, than the Tom Triplett Park in Pooler is the one for you. With an 18-hole disc golf course, it also has a jogging track and tennis courts. With pavilions and fishing piers, this is the perfect green getaway place.
5. Butter Bean Beach
For an unheard of location, Butter Bean Beach is the go-to patch of green. Located in Isle of Hope, it’s more of beach than a park. However, it still offers plenty of space for activities while also providing a place to relax and go swimming. You can even rent kayaks here!
