This is a gated but free park that's great for picnics or just strolling around among a well-maintained but not fussy garden full of native plants. There are several ponds as well full of lily pads. You might even see a frog or koi fish. There are also beautiful (and often ornery) peacocks roaming freely. That's really the best reason... More

My family and I love to visit this place when we are in Austin. It's a beautiful glimpse into a simpler time long past. My children love to walk the grounds and see the peacocks and look for fish in the ponds. Very tranquil relaxing place to visit.

Excellent place to see Indian Peacock Show. See my pics attached. You must go when it is Cloudy or just before rain to see peacocks dancing. Many people don't know about this park. So this review/

My first time seeing peacocks !!!! The place is not too far from downtown. It's a clean place too contrary to what a read earlier. They also have picnic tables so next time I hope to grab a bite right next to the beautiful proud birds:-)

Peaceful grounds with beautiful gardens, a small quaint white cottage built in the 1870's, majestic pea cocks roaming freely and ponds with turtles. It's quiet and charming.

My friend and I packed a picnic lunch and visited Mayfield on a beautiful Austin day. The peacocks were well worth the visit. They were all over the grounds and showing off for the ladies. The grounds are gorgeous and very easy to walk through.

Tucked away you would never know this place was here. The peacocks are beautiful, the landscaping is beautiful and in spring time the place is alive with so much color and life! A must see. Check out the trail as well!

I got a lot of great pics of the grounds - my friend and I hiked a little bit but not the whole length. The peacocks were really cool to; very pretty, although one of them was a tad ornery. We got pretty close to it though, so s/he was probably just telling us to back off. The port-o-potty on... More
