Topiary Park


After a week or more of rain rain rain, it was so awesome to have a beautiful day like today. We decided to venture out to the Topiary Park right smack in downtown Columbus. It's located right next to Main Library and we used to go here for walks or to throw around a baseball ALL the time when we first got married and moved to Columbus, but it's been awhile now. I actually think the last time I might have been here was when I was pregnant with Eleanor....



Anyway, it's a wonderful place to visit. We had a little simple picnic, looked at the beautiful Topiary which is interpreted from the famous George Seurat's painting A Sunday Afternoon on the Isle of La Grande Jatte, checked out the baby ducks in the pretty pond, and Michael and Eleanor got in a fun game of hide-and-seek!


The Friends of the Topiary Park and those who maintain it should get big kudos for how gorgeous it is always maintained. It's the start of the season, so of course the bushes will grow into the sculpture. Also neat to visit during winter months as well.

Hey Rena - we do love to go there. We were there last week actually. Eleanor loves that treehouse and windmill/water play area.

Looks like you had a wonderful time! I'll have to take Joe and Emma down there one of these days soon.

We're heading to the Park of Roses in the next few weeks, the roses should be in full bloom very, very soon. If you haven't popped yet, maybe the four of you could meet the three of us for a picnic! :)
