The idea is charming: an entire topiary garden devoted to Sunday Afternoon on La Grand Jette (or, as many people will call it, Sunday In The Park With George.) We had spare time on a picture perfect morning, so we went to check it out....More

I love the idea of a topiary version of Georges Seurat's A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grand Jatte within this small park. However, seeing some of the topiary cages missing some, if not all, of their vegetation really robs the topiary of...More

For some reason, Columbus decided that it needed a topiary garden that recreated A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte by Georges Seurat from shrubbery. It really works! Sort of wacky but worth a walk through.

We stopped by after lunch, the topiary sculptures are cool, need some work/updates around the park tho. And I don't feel safe in the park, have drunkies and such, so we just took few pics and left...I would say don't go there alone.

This is not a park with a playground or other park-like attractions. It is simple with its square design and simple paths. Not a ton of flowers, but the topiary sculptures are great if you like nature or of course, Monet. There are no flushing...More

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