Packed a picnic lunch and enjoyed this little oasis in the city after visiting the Columbus Museum of Art. Nice little gift shop.

A wonderful idea to take a work of art and turn it into a living picture in a beautiful setting was accomplished with the Topiary Garden. George Seurat's pointillism painting of "A SUNDAY AFTERNOON ON THE ISLAND OF LA GRANDE JATTE" has been crafted from wire skeletons covered with green bushes and trees. The pond complete with a sculptured boat... More

Most of the locals have never heard of it. I bring all my visitors here. Everyone is always impressed. My kids love it. It is one of Columbus/s hidden gems.

The Topiary Park is a landscape sculpture, using live plants trained by oversized metal ‘topiary’ structures and a pond to represent the well know painting by Georges Seurat – ‘A Sunday afternoon on the Isle of La Grand Jatte’. You park on the perimeter and walk in to not only view the work, but to walk among the characters. It... More

This little park is amazing. The topi arise really do emulate Seurat's painting. We just enjoyed walking about and learning about, but it would also be a fine place for enjoying a picnic or cup of coffee.

The bushes (topiary) is nice to see, but the park itself is average. Plenty of picnic tables, no restrooms. There is a spot on the bridge where the bushes are the same view of a painting.

Topiary garden based on Seurat, Sunday on the Grande Jette (in Chicago art museum. Beautifully done...allows you to wander through the "painting" for different perspectives. A unique experience.

This adorable community park is just a great space, to begin with. But on one side of the park, the designers used Georges Seurat's "Un dimanche après-midi à l'Île de la Grande Jatte" is inspiration for topiaries. It is really stunning and fun. The tree-people are larger than life!

Just a few blocks away from the hustle and bustle of the city is this small park with a hand full of topiary trees/shrubs. Perfect for a sunny afternoon picnic.

You will likely spend only a few minutes here, but the experience is unique. Walking toward the topiary I thought it did not look like anything special. Once I was in the right location - you know this if you read the sign and view a copy of the actual painting - I was impressed. Excellent work, very creative, very... More
