Savannah playgrounds: New pavilion with restrooms now open @ Mother Mathilda Beasley Park

Mother Mathilda Beasley playground, Savannah

The new covered pavilion with bathrooms is now open at Mother Mathilda Beasley Park on East Broad Street.

The park – named in honor of Mother Mathilda Beasley, Georgia’s first African American nun – includes two playgrounds with new equipment, large grass-covered field, a baseball field, multi-purpose trail and dog park.

Last week, county officials celebrated the completion of the $365,000 sales-tax-funded pavilion designed to reflect the location’s former use as a passenger railroad station.

The pavilion is by the park’s southwest entrance and overlooks the playground and baseball field. It provides a place for community gatherings, as well as restrooms and a water fountain.

(Fingers crossed that the pavilion will remain unlocked during daytime hours for families to use while visiting the playgrounds!)
