Julian Feild Park - Serenity Gardens
Built in 1960 by a citizens’ group, Julian Feild Park is the oldest park in Mansfield. The park was named after one of Mansfield’s original founders, Julian Feild. Serenity Gardens was added in 2001 during a park renovation as a quiet place for reflection and remembering loved ones. This wooded park is located along a creek, which serves as a habitat for the Red Wing Blackbird.
This park also features a Texas Smart Scape demonstration garden. The purpose of this garden is to educate our citizens on the ecological, economic and aesthetic benefits of using landscaping plants, shrubs, grasses and trees that are native or adapted to our regional climate and local conditions. The ultimate goal is to conserve local water supplies and improve storm water runoff quality by reducing the amount of water needed to maintain landscapes while decreasing the amounts of pesticides, fertilizer and herbicides used in landscaping practices.
Amenities include a playground, a picnic table with grill and a memorial brick plaza with flower beds and benches.
