Beautiful grounds, an Italian and a Japanese garden, animals that are indigenous to the area, places to picnic, the manor house (which is open for tours), carriage rides in season, this lovely park was originally a private estate that was donated to the city. It has something for everyone in every... More

Maymont is really a great park and matches up with parks of any big city. It has gorgeous gardens, nice history, and great views. If you catch it at the right time, you may even see some historical reenactments. Check their calendars. Richmond should be proud of such a great family park.

Maymont Park is a park donated to the City of Richmond by the Dooley family. It houses the Dooley Mansion (a mansion from the Gilded Age) and the best park around. From the Japanese gardens to the wildlife exhibits, from the Nature Center to the "wedding" terrace - and acres of green space, you cannot go wrong with a visit... More

If you grew up in Richmond, Maymont is a well manged and special park you start going to as a youngster to see the baby goats in the springtime and end up returning year after year to walk its paths. The entire park is lovely but my favorite part of the park is the Japanese Garden. People of all ages... More
