This is a nice small park in the middle of the city. Free attraction one can stop by and spend time enjoying the replica of the painting in a garden. Good photo ops if you are into that sort of stuff. or just a nice place to go for a stroll and chill with a family meal.

A hidden gem behind the Columbus Library Main Parking structure. We always visit both library and park, so we use the inexpensive library parking garage. The library has a coffee shop, and there's a nearby Subway if you want to sit and enjoy the life-size topiary based on Seurat's A Sunday on La Grande Jatte See the original here:

Look for live music events like the kid friendly PB&J Jazz concerts on certain Saturdays in the summer.

A nice, quiet garden. The topiaries are out of the ordinary, although when we visited most of them were missing green in portions of the figures. Overall, a different and beautiful place to see.

An enjoyable way to spend 30 minutes on a lazy afternoon. A very unique experience that is worth your time.

It's the only topiary garden in existence based on a work of art (Seurat's "A Sunday Afternoon on the Isle of La Grand Jatte." Close to 80 yews are clipped and shaped into three dimensional green sculptures of people, boats, dogs,a monkey and a cat. There is also a pond with fish and water lilies.

It is located in the Old Deaf School Park in downtown Columbus, OH. No admission fee.
