Time Out says
Mills Pond is a tranquil hideaway in the Wells Branch area of Austin. The main draw here is taking a reflective stroll or going for a run on the trails that circle the pond at the center of the park. The pond also has a fishing pier where you can post up and catch some catfish, bass and crappie, and a dock where all non-motorized boats are welcome. While there, you’ll probably spot a number of ducks, geese and cranes, which all serve to complete the peaceful scene.
