Nice, little known park downtown

This is a pleasant place to walk or sit and read, or even have a picnic. There is limited parking in the area, all of which requires payment, but if you live close to downtown... read more

This is a pleasant place to walk or sit and read, or even have a picnic. There is limited parking in the area, all of which requires payment, but if you live close to downtown, walking to the park is easy. On occasion they have events like outdoor movies and concerts also.

I visited the Topiary Garden on a gloriously sunny day (that always helps!). A nice surprise to find in the middle of Columbus. It doesn't take up a lot of time, so you can probably visit in 10-20 minutes max.

This is a quick and easy attraction to visit. It is in a quiet neighborhood on a Saturday morning that makes it easy to park and easy to stroll through the Garden.

Museum gift shop is closed on Mondays. On the street parking is available. Stroll up the winding path from the museum gift shop and stop and look from the park bench.

Beautiful small park within the city. Wonderful and tranquil green space. Very enjoyable for me as a gardener.

For me, this was a 5 star attraction because it features my favorite painting depicted in topiary figures. This was something I just had to see and I was not disappointed. However, it's really just a tiny park with a quirky feature and I doubt someone without a love of that particular painting or at least of topiary in general... More

We spent the day exploring Columbus and this was hands down the best stop of the day. There are plenty of photo ops including the topiary boats in the pond. I loved it!

A lovely spot of color and art in the downtown area. It's great for a quick visit or to clear your mind. Probably a haven to people who work and live nearby. Worth a short visit but done expect grandeur it's a tiny metro park done well.

After reading all the good reviews we decided to stop by on a trip in Columbus. I was disappointed. I thought it would be more and alot of them bare showing the wires underneath. It was just ok.

Took a trip to the Topiary Garden over the Labor Day weekend. Had always wanted to check it out. The self guided tour, starting with the copper reproduction of the George Seurat's "A Sunday Afternoon.." was great. The topiary do really represent the painting very well. Because it was late summer, most of the flowering plants around the entire green... More
