historyTopiary Park (officially the Old Deaf School Park) is a 9.2-acre public park and garden in Columbus, Ohio's Discvery District, with a pond, picnicking, and a walking trail.

The park is formally known as Deaf School Park, or Old Deaf School Park, as it was part of the campus of the Ohio School for the Deaf. It is owned by the city of Columbus and maintained by the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department. There was no fee to enter the park, but it did cost to park the car either at a street meter or in a pay-for-parking-lot.

FYI: to·pi·ar·y / ˈtōpēˌerē/ is a noun meaning the art or practice of clipping shrubs or trees into ornamental shapes aka the horticultural practice of training perennial plants by clipping the foliage and twigs of trees and shrubs to develop and maintain clearly defined shapes, whether geometric or fanciful. The term also refers to plants which have been shaped in this way.

The topiary garden, officially the Topiary Garden at Old Deaf School Park, is designed to depict figures from George Seurat's 1884 painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. It is the only park based entirely on a painting, at this time.

Below: "As He Saw It" represents how Seurat saw the scene as he was painting it.
