Clegg Garden resides on the hillside overlooking state scenic waterway Wildcat Creek. The slopes feature a rare gravel hill prairie ecosystem. From creek side to hilltop elevation changes 100 feet, making for excellent hiking opportunity along the mile of trail. The looping trail meanders through oak woodland, gravel hill prairie, riparian corridor and savanna. Different seasons afford varying highlights. Spring woodland blooms dapple the understory, summer prairie and savanna wildflowers show off vibrant colors, fall leaf change presents a panoply of color in the forest canopy. Year round visitors see the striking landscape views from the many overlooks.

We love to visit here, just to get away from the hustle of the city for a while. I used to take my kids here when they were young, just to let them work out some extra energy. Truly beautiful in the fall.

Awesome little gem in Lafayette with great topography which strolls near the river. Lots of diversity and pretty well managed. The manager and staff are very friendly and welcome all. Great bird watching as well.

Fall is not the best time to visit this place. The trails were nice, but a little difficult for senior citizens. I would love to go back in the spring to see the flowers.

I have loved this place for decades. However, the trails are in a sad state. Many are missing one or both of the rails. This makes it difficult for some people to walk the trails.

If you like to hike, but don't want to drive to Turkey Run or another state park, this is a good place to visit. It's small, but it's in town so it's nice to visit when you don't have much time. Be sure to note...More

This place is a hidden gem. Many people do not even know that it is in Lafayette. I used to take our dog out there to let him run around. The place is beautiful and SO restful.

Having visited a number of botanic gardens in the past including the Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh, although I wasn't naive enough to believe it was on the same scale, I was expecting a little more. From the description, botanic always alludes to a multitude...More
