The Mayfield-Gutsch Estate is a historic home and park grounds in west Austin, Texas near the shores of Lake Austin. Originally built in the 1870s, the cottage was purchased by former Texas Secretary of State Allison Mayfield in 1909. In 1922, the house passed to Mayfield's daughter, Mary Frances, and her husband, University of Texas professor Milton Gutsch. They expanded the home, adding porches on three sides, and greatly developed the surrounding gardens. When Mary Mayfield Gutsch died in 1971, the home and grounds were left to the City of Austin for use as a park.[2]

Today, Mayfield Park remains open to the public. The grounds are immediately adjacent to Laguna Gloria, today home to the Austin Museum of Art.

The home and park are located at 3505 West 35th Street. The estate was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.
