Clegg Memorial Gardens certainly has potential, as it runs along the scenic Wildcat Creek. However, the place really needs some care. The trails themselves are in sad shape. They're overgrown, and directional signage is very difficult to find. I'm very shocked that I didn't end...More

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.
