This is the Deaf School Park Topiary Gardens. Found some street parking to stop in at the gardens. Pollinators were busy all around. A great spot to have a picnic or to sit on the lawn and enjoy the gardens and sunshine. The shallow water feature usually has some ducks to see.

My sister lives near here and loves to take her dog there. After a visit to a nearby attraction, we stopped by the Topiary Garden to check it out. It was QUITE cold, but the garden really looked pretty. I especially like the little pond in the park. While it is not huge, it is very clean, and the backdrop... More

I wanted to take my sister, who was visiting from Maine, to some interesting places in Columbus, I had heard of this garden from a friend and thought that it would be a lovely place to visit. I think the idea of the place is wonderful, but it did not meet my expectations. First of all, many of the figures... More

We went during the summer and some of the topiaries are in bad shape. It's beautiful and neat to see and walk through the story.

A great place to stroll, think, play and observe a truly unique piece of living art. "At the heart of the Topiary Park is a living sculptural interpretation of Georges Seurat’s Post-Impressionist Painting A Sunday Afternoon on the Isle of La Grand Jatte. It is the only known topiary representation of a painting" On any given day you might encounter... More

I was doing some research at the main library and came to this park several times for a picnic lunch. Seems well maintained.

Wonderful spot to take a walk through the beautiful trees and gardens. The topiaries are based on the painting "A Walk in the Park". Very well maintained.

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
