  • It’s a nice place to visit, nothing spectacular. A nicely kept garden area with some koi ponds that could use a little more attention. Peacocks are roaming freely. Short paths to overlook the river...

  • Nice features and layout. Free roaming peacocks which were entertaining. They were even on the roofs of the pergolas and the house. Koi in ponds, some of which were huge. Some color in January...

  • Great place to chill out unless it's booked for a private event which rarely is. It's free BTW. Parking is free too. If you can't already tell, it's a place to go see peacocks and peahens up close. The peacocks and peahens are totally fearless, well almost. You can see them casually hanging out and in good numbers, they are everywhere. The trails around it are tiny and don't have anything to do with the birds. They are just there for a small stroll when the weather is good.
  • This is such a cute place to check out! I love bringing people here when they visit Austin. Seeing the peafowl is definitely the best part but the grounds are pretty too. My only complaint is I wish they maintained it better. Best time check it out is the spring when all the flowers are blooming!
  • Another awesome place to visit within Austin city limits. We took a small lunch to picnic outside the premises but still enjoy the view of the many peacocks that are residents of this park. There was more people that I expected but it quickly cleared up. Best time to go is around 3pm. By this time many people are heading out. Parking becomes easier and you’ll get to enjoy the park a lot more. Definitely worth a return trip.
  • I came here with my 7 month old so he can fall in love with nature and we loved it 🤗 the peacocks were BEAUTIFUL and so were the gardens and the landscape, overall. It is not a huge place, but honestly, that is another thing I like about this place. **BUT, if you are bringing a baby stroller, the paths aren't stroller friendly. I left my stroller by a tree by the entrance. I went on a weekday (late morning I believe) and it was so peaceful, not busy, sweet children, I could go on...
  • A wonderful public garden with a surprisingly large trail. Unfortunately, when I visited, it happened to be 105 degrees outside so I quickly got heat exhaustion. Regardless, the peacocks are beautiful and mild mannered (so long as you maintain proper etiquette!). There's an albino peacock and if you come at the right time you might spot some peafowl with their chicks. The trail is great with peaceful views of the Colorado River and interesting elevation. Would love to revisit when the weather cools down a bit!
