Emmet Park is a beautiful, tree-shaded park located on the bluff overlooking the Savannah River. Emmet Park was once known as the “Strand” and later as “Irish Green” because of its proximity to the Irish residents of Savannah’s Old Fort neighborhood. The park was later renamed, in 1902, for the Irish patriot Robert Emmet (1778-1803 ) to commemorate the centennial of his death.
Several blocks long, Emmet Park is known for its thriving landscape which provides a beautiful shady setting. The park is historically significant to Savannah because of the variety of monuments and memorials including:
Irish Celtic Cross Memorial
Vietnam Veterans Memorial
Korean War Memorial
Chatham Artillery Memorial
Dr. Noble Wimberly Jones Memorial
Old Harbor Light
