Mayfield Park reviews
Gorgeous peacocks strutting their stuff here is amazing. The trail is a fun and easy 1 to 1.5 mile trek which includes walking through a couple of small streams. (Staying dry is relatively easy by... more »

Nice quiet spot to get away from the city. Is well designed and has a good number of photo worth locations even in the small area that it is. Loved it's simplicity and accessibility. Was really nice to see peacocks strutting around showing their awesome feathers. The peacocks were docile but would not recommend petting/touching them as they are not trained to interact with people. One can spend a hour or two here and enjoy the sights and sounds.
A beautiful place for a walk/hike. The park has two parts, the park out front and the nature preserve in the back. The park portion is suitable for all ages with stone paved paths, water features, and peacocks. The peacocks don't seem to pay much attention to the people who visit the park which is fine by me. I honestly would have found it freaky if they swarmed me or something. The Nature Preserve in back is, in my opinion, the real gem of this park. The paths are not too rigorous and it makes for a nice hike. However, the trails in the nature preserve section often have roots cutting across the walkways. There are also with stairs in some places with no alternative paths and some of the "bridges" over the creek are precarious. In other words, the nature preserve section is not suitable for all ages. Those with unsure footing or those who are young enough to be in a stroller are probably best off avoiding this area. I personally found the nature preserve to be most enjoyable, but it is not for everyone due to limited accessibility.
