Being decorated with lights for the Christmas season gives this destination a totally different perspective from that of other seasons.

This is a fabulous garden depicting the French painting "A Sunday Afternoon on the Isle of the Grand Jatte", by Georges Seurat. It is 7 acres with good sidewalks throughout. It is the former grounds of the Columbus School for the Deaf.

This was fairly popular when we visited (appropriately) on a Sunday afternoon. It’s located on shady Town St., a few blocks east of the statehouse in an apparently safe area. The clever interpretation of the Seurat work is well done and well maintained. It’s a...More

Definitely worth stopping to view the topiary... I visited later in the evening. It isn't a huge area but well worth a wander round. Would be lovely to have a picnic in. Squirrels running up the trees was a highlight... we don't have them in...More

This topiary garden is lovingly maintained, and a delight at the holidays when lit up. Walking about is free. An uplifting and unique outing; we always take out of town friends and family for a visit to the topiary garden.

The park is very pretty and well-maintained. We enjoyed walking the paths around the artistic plants, but didn't spend more than 15 minutes exploring.

It was disheartening to see how this beautiful park is lacking in care! The grass in the park was long and in need of mowing... many of the topiary statues were missing foliage...especially the sailboat which was almost bare. The city should be ashamed they...More

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