Mayfield is one of the lesser known parks in Austin--charming and quiet.
Peacocks are a major attraction; several were doing beautiful displays while we visited. We spotted an albino peacock up in a tree and a few feathers on the ground. The trees provide good shade, so it is comfortable even on a hot day.
It's a nice place for photos and families, also romantic. There are signs at the parking lot not to leave valuables in the car. It is a free attraction.
