This is a wonderful depiction of Seurat's painting done in topiaries and some metals. Check the garden's facebook page for events like movie night and jazz concerts. We enjoyed a Saturday storytime for kids followed by an hour of a really good jazz band. They will return 8-8-15 and 9-12-15. We brought a blanket, found a shady spot and enjoyed... More

This is a unique concept for a park. The garden is in a peaceful setting next to a surprisingly beautiful school. Unfortunately, it is difficult to get close to the front of the topiary display due to the pond and flower gardens. It is therefore difficult to view it from the front on, and it is easier to view the... More

It is a beautiful park and the topiaries were interesting, especially the ones in the pond. It is not very time consuming unless you just want to relax and hangout. I'm glad I stopped by.

Very quiet and serene park. It is a living sculptural interpretation of Georges Seurat’s "A Sunday Afternoon on the Isle of La Grand Jatte." The topiary work is breathtaking. It is a short stop, definitely worth seeing. Or you can hang out and relax and enjoy the gardens.

The park was alright, but nothing special. It features lots of grass, but not a lot more. The shaped bushes seemed incomplete.

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.
