Parkside is named for the bustling Daffin Park that anchors this energetic community. Daffin boasts more than 80 acres of green space that includes sports fields, picnic tables, a fountained pond and our favorite- a live oak promenade. The beautiful and historic Grayson Stadium, home to the Sand Gnats (a farm team for the NY Mets) anchors the east end of the park. During the season, many residents walk to the stadium for a well-loved “thirsty Thursday” game, or stay home and enjoy the fire works from their own backyards.

Although secluded, this neighborhood has easy access to the entire Savannah area thanks to the Truman Parkway.
