I was very disappointed in this park. I did not find it worth the $1 I paid to park at a meter. The majority of topiaries were in really bad condition. Some almost bare. The small pond was muddy and looked awful. Quite a few homeless people taking up the benches in the park. I found the architecture of the... More

Topiary Park is a place that will generally show up in lists with titles like "Best Things to Do in Columbus" or similar. While I don't know that it is a must-see when visiting Columbus, I'm glad I found time to visit. There is ample on-street, metered parking. I found the neighborhood in which the park is situated to be... More

We stopped at the Topiary Park to take a break from a day spent driving. There weren't as many (or varied) sculptures as I had expected, but it was nice, clean, and well kept. The kids had a chance to run around for a bit, there was only one other person in the park while we there in the late... More

I've seen pics on the computer and they make the park look bigger than it was. Also, didn't care for some guys trying to use some stupid lame pick up lines on any females walking around. Other than that, it was OK.

Georges Seurat’s famous painting A Sunday Afternoon on the Isle of La Grand Jatte is one of my favorites. This was like walking amongst it. We were there on a chilly day, so we only walked about for a half an hour or so, but it was a delightful half hour. This is a hidden gem and if you are... More

A larger than life-sized depiction of Impressionist artist Georges Seurat's famous painting "A Sunday Afternoon on the Isle of La Grande Jatte", now 22 years in the making. If you don't know or remember it, there's a bronze plaque on site to show you the painting's elements - all of which are represented in sculpted trees and shrubs.

November is likely not the optimal time to see the garden created by George Mason, but if you do, wait until it's dark so you can see all the holiday lights added. The topiaries themselves seem created with metal forms, and some are being re grown. It's an unusual park worth a ten or fifteen minute stop!

Love this! Find the plaque of the original painting (A Sunday Afternoon on the Ile De La Grande Jatte by Georges Seurat) and then the fun begins. Find all the characters in the painting done with topiary plants – 54 people, eight boats, three dogs, a monkey and a cat. So cool!
