My boyfriend and I came here after visiting Mount Bonnell, which is very close. There is a nice easy trail that takes about 30 minutes to walk and then you get to the cottage where the Peacocks are. (You can also just go straight to the cottage from the parking lot). Being an active 30-something couple with no kids, this... More

This smaller, tucked away park has some historic cottages on it as well as extensive walking trails. There are also a number of peacocks wandering around the property.

A great place for photos and for children to get up close and personal with friendly peacocks that roam the property. Beautiful historic park.

I absolutely loved the peacocks! They're so beautiful and friendly! There are so many of them. The park itself is nice, and a nice little hike. I'm so happy i stopped by!

This was a brief pitstop between Mt. Bonnell and Gloria Laguna Contemporary Art museum. Enjoy the wandering peacocks and go for a walk int he woods.

This is a nice little park that offers benches, shade, picnicking and of course darling peacocks! There are six ponds, multiple trails and an interesting cottage. However, pets are not allowed and professional photographers must book sessions with the city in advance.

Beautiful setting with gardens. Flowers still blooming in November. Peacocks add nice touch. Would love it as a summer home.

Nice, short, hike. Gardens were nice. Peacocks are the highlight. 30 minutes to 45 is all you need here. Free attraction. Peacocks like to be fed.

Loved the peacocks (even without their summer plumage). Great place to take a brisk hike after a day of checking out Austin's many food opportunities. The place is just beautiful.
