Rooftop Garden Tours 

All tours for 2024 are now booked. If more tours are added, we will announce them on the Urban Arts Space Instagram.

For 2024, tours will be offered on Fridays at 2 p.m. on the following dates:

  • April 5
  • May 3
  • June 7
  • July 12 (second Friday)
  • August 2
  • September 6
  • October 4

Get an up-close look at the gorgeous garden atop the historic Lazarus Building. As a bonus, you'll also see 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 the Urban Arts Space front desk with a guided tour of our current exhibition, and then we will move 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.

Tours are free and are limited to 20 people, so reserve your spot now! (Note: if you are registering for more than one person, you must register each person separately.)

Please check the calendar regularly for cancellations if all spots are full.
