Mayfield Nature Preserve – Gardens

IMG_4675

The Mayfield Nature Preserve is home to the Mayfield-Gutsch Estate, and they take pride in their gardens.  In 1971, Mary Mayfield-Gutsch left the Estate to the City of Austin for use as a park.  There are several volunteer gardens to see, along with a few lily pad ponds and an old dinner bell that hangs from an archway in the stone wall.
