Garden Loop Trail

This 1.1-mile paved trail passes the Legacy Garden.  The overlook features a beautiful overlook, gazebo and lists of the memorial trees planted in the fields below.

The inner loop travels alongside of the Mill Creek, which stretches all the way downtown to the Ohio River.

Look closely in the stone bridge made of local rocks. You will see fossils from ancient sea creatures that lived here millions of years ago!

Please note: Bikes, skates and scooters are not permitted on the trail.

Wetland Loop Trail

The trail passes through a variety of habitats, including forest, wetland and prairie. Be sure to check out the prairies in mid to late summer when they are ablaze with color! 

Look for butterflies visiting soft purple blazing star and brilliant orange butterfly weed in bloom and visit the small vernal pools along the trail to see a variety of frogs and many dragonflies.

The riparian areas along the West Fork of the Mill Creek offer fantastic birding opportunities. Stroll up to the lotus pond to look for American lotus blooming in July and August.
