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!

When I say "Stop By" that's literally what I mean. It is very small but it is neat to see. It is a recreation of the Famous Painting shown in the pictures I attached. I was expecting a much bigger garden but it was very...More

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!

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