“extensive beds of wildflowers”

The Clegg Botanical Garden overlooks and runs along side the Wildcat Creek offering a naturalistic setting including prairie and oak savanna restorations, with extensive beds of wildflowers, labelled trees, nature trails, and bridges. Open year round and offers a different experience each season. Open daily until dusk. This park is on the northeast side of Lafayette. Watch carefully when you are nearing it because it is easy to miss. The park has several foot trails running along the banks of Wildcat Creek and on the bluffs overhead. A lot of work has been put into building scenic overlooks and shoring up trails running along the hillsides. Although much of Indiana is flat, this park gives you the opportunity to experience hilly terrain. The park is meant to preserve and reintroduce the original flora and fauna of the region and yearly controlled burns are conducted to keep a dense forest from growing and allow the native planes species to thrive.
