Danny Mayfield Park was opened as a neighborhood park during the renovation of the historic Mechanicsville in November 2004. An outdoor art gallery displays various African art sculptures for public viewing. Other amenities include a large shelter with electricity, a playground, and an outdoor classroom for students from the adjacent Manyard Elementary School and the nearby Knoxville College.
The park is named for the late Councilman Danny Mayfield, Knoxville College alumnus, co-founder of the urban ministry Tribe One, and a community leader who represented the 6th District until his death from bone cancer in 2001.
