A beautiful place to walk on a nice day. The grounds are immaculate. It is near the Columbus Library which has been totally refurbished.

Beautiful topiary garden based on Seurat’s famous painting. Nice little side trip (walk) after my daughters choir concert at he Art Museum.

Much of downtown Columbus is just big business buildings. When you get to this quaint little park, it's surprisingly cute. The topiaries are people, like in one of the famous park paintings by Seurat. A nice little diversion!

Was a really great experience, like being part of the actual painting..beautiful with all the spring trees in bloom. Now I want to experience it in the other seasons as well. What a neat and creative idea.

This is a lovely, little park. One should go in the late summer so that the plants will be full and maintaince has been done The early spring is not the best time to see this at its best.

We knew there were topiaries in the park but not that they were a representation of Seurat's painting. Thought it was great fun to walk through the picture and have my picture taken with the pet dogs and monkey from the painting

Not sure what the negative reviewers were expecting, it is a small park with a very creative concept for its topiary - modeling a famous painting. It does it well. Upkeep seemed fine to me.

I was extremely excited to see this park after seeing all of the positive reviews. But it was very disappointing. It is not 7 acres like the website states. It’s more like a small neighborhood park completing gated in. It is very run down and...More

We had no idea this park was here, and we had never seen a topiary before, so this was an amazing find. There were only a few folks wandering around while we were there, so we had a very leisurely and relaxed experience. There was...More

This park in the heart of Columbus is really something special. Topiaries have been established imitating the famous painting of "A Day in the Park with George" . Really fun to see!

You can park along the street. I think I remember parking meters. Not too expensive.

Yes, I believe there was a lady walking a dog around the path while we were there.
