From what we could see this looked like it would be a nice, quiet, and romantic place to spend an 1 hour or 2. However, there is no parking other than meter parking. Most parking was full and the two meters we tried took our money and did not give us any parking time. Sad to say we missed out... More

My daughters and I decided to visit the Topiary Garden Park in Columbus, Ohio, where we can enjoy fun, pictures, and a warm-sunny day. The park was not difficult to find as well as parking; however, visitors have to pay for parking using parking-meters. As my daughters and I walked towards the park, we were able to read some fun-facts... More

Enjoyed the stop at this park and being able to see the actual painting so you could match up the figures made from trimmed shrubs. Even the kids enjoyed picking out the figures.

the day we were there, the green statues needed trimming. They were not very distinctive. You kind of guessed at what they were supposed to be. The duck pond was nice.

The most notable feature of this park is the re-creation of the Georges Seurat painting "Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" by means of plants sculpted into the shape of people, boats and animals. They really do re-create the painting out of bushes and trees backed by wire skeletons. Besides the re-creation of the painting, there are... More

I've lived in Columbus my whole life and visited the Topiary Garden for the first time yesterday. Such a peaceful place away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. There are plenty of picnic tables around the park to use. I found the garden itself very interesting. I can see where a few people felt it needed work but it... More

I attended a free concert at the park. It was clean and really beautiful. I can't wait to have another picnic in the park here again!

I recently went to the park after making a visit to the library. I was with my nephew and we decided to grab sandwiches from the Hills Market to eat at the park. I had not been in years so when I we crossed the gates into the park I was surprised to see how it had declined. The Topiary... More

We lived in Columbus for five years before checking out the gardens. Wish we had done so years before! What a great place to pause and reflect amongst the city bustle. We walked through the topiaries, played frisbee on the lawn, and then sat and watched the ducks in the pond. Can't wait to go again soon!

The topiary's were over grown... They needed to be trimmed, we saw some people who were there to check out the park and then some people who were hanging their laundry out to dry on a bench. The topiary work was nice, but needed some upkeep.
