Over the course of my voyage, I have been surprised to see the common theme of parks that are inhabited by peacocks. They are such majestic birds, seeming as if they come right out of a dream. This is what brought me to Mayfield Park in Austin TX, where peacocks roam free.
In 1909, Austin Politician Allison Mayfield purchased 23 acers of land as a summer cabin for his family. The 1870s cottage was taken over by Allison’s daughter, Mary Mayfield-Gutsch, who installed a stone wall around the premises and filled the area with colorful gardens and more.
Upon her death, Mary donated the estate and its surrounding land to the city of Austin, Texas, which has kept the area open to the public, and since has been added to the National Register of Historical Places. The park is filled with paths to hike, ponds to relax at, and peacocks to keep you company.
