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!

We make a habit of stopping and walking through the topiary garden at least once each season. Peaceful living art, never crowded. Just a nice place to take a quick breather.

Worth a really quick visit if in downtown. We have been there at the beginning of November and the green wasn’t well kept.

This was a stopover after having the biggest burger I have ever had at the Thurman Cafe and was a wonderful experience when it is learned that the topiaries are done to replicate a painting, absolutely breathtaking! I recommend this park for everyone!

If you're familiar with the musical Sunday in the Park with George, or the painting by Georges Seurat, then this place will be a very special find for you! It's a small park with bushes trimmed to look like the characters from the painting. It's...More

This place is so cool! Like a little green oasis in the city. I don't think you need more than 45-60 minutes here, but it's time well spent. Very peaceful!

This was a quaint little park. I walked to it to check out the scenery. There wasn't very much there only really a small section where the designed bushes were. It seemed more like a dog park because that's all anyone was doing so you...More

The topiary is a recreation of a Seurat painting from the art institute in Chicago and brilliantly done. We had seen the original recently and were delighted to see this imaginative attempt at reproducing one of the best known impressionist works. A real gem.

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.
