Most people should allow at least 2 days to cover the entire area. If you are young and without children, you may be able to cover the area in 1 long day.

This tour will begin at Franklin Square in the Northwest corner and proceed West-to-East, North-to-South to Whitefield Square in the Southeast corner -- and then on to Forsyth Park.

Alternate your direction on each row to minimize the walking -- i.e., from Washington Square, walk South to Greene Square and then proceed East to West (Greene Square to Telfair Square) on the second row

  • MLK Blvd. (West Boundary)
