The topiaries are remarkable in their placement and style. It is a wonderful "version" of Seurat's A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grand Jatte (which would make the artist himself proud). The best time of year to go here is the summer. Take a picnic lunch!

Bring a book or picnic lunch and enjoy a summer afternoon amongst the topiaries. There is a walking path around and through the park with signs explaining what you are looking at. There is also a nice little gift shop for memorabilia.

See the extensive and wonderfully sculpted topiary garden; of wonderful interest is James T. Mason's recreation, in topiaries on a large scale, of Seurat "A Sunday 'afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte." Well worth a lengthy visit.

Be careful if you think that you will see a formal French garden here . If you input Topiary Garden Columbus Ohio you will be brought to a photo of beautiful vista of a grand French formal garden and below it it has the link to the Topiary Garden in Columbus Ohio . This is very deceptive because you will... More

This is a totally unique park that will leave quite an impression...based on a famous painting by Seurat in the 1880's...bushes are carefully pruned to resemble the people from the famous painting, which is located at the top of the hill (reprint). The way the park is landscaped it is quite and peaceful even though you are only fractions of... More

This is a very beautiful park in the shadow of the downtown skyscrapers of Columbus, Ohio, If you find yourself downtown Columbus, Ohio with some times on your hands its a very peaceful place to walk and or rest.

We were here in october,It was kind of neglected looking. Someone had some ''cheesey'' looking orange halloween stuff on some of the sculptured shrubs..it pretty much ruined the abience of them at best. There was also a fair amount of trash&bottles floating in the pond. I would like to visit when it is better.

A recreation of a famous painting, it's a great place for a walk on a sunny day, and the topiaries are well done.

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.
