WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Purdue University's Horticulture Park is finally back open after being closed for a portion of 2016 and most of 2017.

The park was closed because of the State Street Project.

During the closure, Todd's Creek was realigned and over eight acres worth of plants were installed in the park along with some new trees and shrubs. The park and trail system were also cleaned up and 11 pedestrian bridges were installed.

Purdue student Jacob Leuk said he's happy the park has re-opened and said he plans on walking through it often.

"It's a good place to bring your dogs and just kind of have some family fun," said Leuk. "You can come out here and walk, there is a lot of big trails and there's a lot of different things to experience out here."

When the State Street Project is complete, the Horticulture Park will be connected to the larger, surrounding trail system that will run along Stadium Avenue, McCormick Road and State Street.
