Where else can you see George Seurat’s famous painting brought to life - Sunday Afternoon on the Isle of La Grande Jatte - as topiary.

If you're in downtown Columbus this charming park is a great place to have a picnic or just enjoy the scenery.

It’s a cute small city park near downtown in a residential neighborhood. Street Parking was easy to find. The park is free and the topiary sculptures were lively depicting the French painting. It was relaxing to walk through the garden. We were the only people there in early evening during the week. I felt like trimming the sculptures to keep... More

With only one leisure day to spend after our conference, we decided upon something unique to Columbus. This Topiary Garden certainly filled our expectations. It was pleasant and restful, and since most people travelling are familiar with the painting by Seurat painting upon which it is based, it becomes quite fun and engaging to identify the various figures, and then...

Easy to find and good free parking. Nice to take a leisurely walk around the park and view the shrubbery. There was a plaque that explained all the different shrubs and that helped when getting up close and personal with them. They needed a good trimming but we could still make out what it was supposed to be, except for... More

This park is very close to German village and is a cute attraction. It's worth a stop to see or our take a picnic. The topiary is after Seurat's painting and is cleverly done. Unfortunately there were a few groups of loud and rude people when we were there, but I'm sure it isn't always that way.

Pleasant stroll thru the sculpted gardens. See if you can name the pictures they mimic. Gift shop on site.

My experience here was GREAT great because there are SIX Poké Stops just inside the perimeter of the park, as well as one Yellow Gym (where I was easily defeated). I also found many Pokémon there, so it was a great hunting trip. I will recommend this place to my trainer friends. Oh, the Seurat thing is a little overrated,... More

This was fun to see. It is just a quick stop to view a pretty park. The topiary is of the famous impressionist painting and is quite well done.

We toured the park on Mon. 7/4. It is easy to locate and since it was a holiday, there wasn't a parking meter charge. It is a misconception to think of the topiaries as an entire "park". They are actually a handful of sculptures depicting a scene from a painting. The rest of the grounds are just benches and well... More
