Rooftop Garden Tours


Rooftop Garden Tours 

Meet up with us the first Friday of every month from now through October to get an up-close look at the gorgeous garden atop the historic Lazarus Building. As a bonus, you'll also get some dazzling views of Columbus. Photography is permitted (and encouraged!), so fire up your camera and get ready to capture some one-of-a-kind views.

Tours start at 2 p.m. at Urban Arts Space with a guided tour of our current exhibition and then moves to the roof with Lazarus Building Manager Robert Turrin for insights into the building's green initiatives and a tour of the garden. Tours last approximately one hour and are held as weather permits. Please note: high heels are not permitted in the garden.

Per the CDC/OSU COVID-19 Guidelines, all visitors are required to wear a mask when indoors.

Please note that as of August 11, only a few spots remain for the October 1 tour; all other tours have filled to capacity. We are currently unable to keep a waitlist or make additional tours available. If unable to visit this year, we look forward to seeing you on a tour next Spring!
