We headed to Clegg Memorial Gardens for a walk recently. We were aware that a road cuts through it but were not prepared adequately for the poor drivers who frequent it. Be sure to allow enough time to safely cross and look both ways. The...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.
