Very well done version of a famous painting done with topiary figures. A new experience to appreciate art.

A gem of a park nestled in and among the downtown Columbus landscape. Beautiful in both the summer and winter (white lights twinkle on the topiary during the holidays). A wonderful replication of George Seurat's famous work, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. So fun and so creative to see it as a topiary garden. Small... More

We finally made it to see the Topiary Garden! It was on our bucket list and it did not disappoint. Lovely, quiet, well done, a great place to sit and muse with A Sunday in the Park... stretching in front of you. It's not a big time commitment but well worth the time to walk from the museum or CCAD... More

I enjoyed walking around this park and viewing the "topiary sculptures" in the park. It's a little gem in the middle of the city. Unfortunately, the gift shop wasn't open.

They have many topiary sculptures in this outdoor urban garden. Worth a look see if you are in the area. Also checkout the new main library and park behind it.

This Garden amazes me!!!!! How these shrubs are shaped into a French scene is wonderful. The park is an interesting part of Columbus 's history. So thankful money is found each year to keep this park open for public viewing.

My husband and I, along with 50 seniors with Coffee Break Tours, Camden, Tennessee, stopped here to tour these awesome gardens. What a treat! We have been through Columbus at least 100 times during our business travels and visiting relatives but never heard of this. What a find! Everyone must go here. We took many, many pictures. There is a... More

This park was darling!! If you love art and nature, it's a must stop. We parked the car along the street and just walked through the gates. The park was very clean and filled with families, couples walking, chatting and sitting in the grass. The park is not huge, but a nice size for it's location in the middle of... More

We found this place as we were killing time waiting for the Kelton House to open. It's in an area that feels run down, we saw people sleeping on benches and a man approached us for money in the park. It was a nice walk with meandering paths and small hills. The topiary portion is small but well done. The... More

The grounds are gorgeous and a great place for a stroll or a picnic. I would imagine that some of the topiary figures have suffered from the two bad winters for the past two years. Some of them are missing or not filled in as they should be. We still enjoyed our walk and will check it out on a... More
