Maymont is a 100-acre American estate, an extraordinary gift given to us by James and Sallie Dooley who lived here from 1893 to 1925. Whether strolling in the gardens, touring the mansion or watching river otters play, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

It was a beautiful place. There was a section near the Japanese Garden that had not been cleared in what appeared to be months. We were walking to a gazebo but the plants & grass had grown and covered the walkway.

Maymont is a must when we visit Richmond. There is a lot of room for the kids to run and play and so many animals to see. The flowers are beautiful. The river otters are my favorite.

Whether you're a visitor to Richmond or a local, you have to find time for Maymont. Spring and summer are the best times, when the gardens are in bloom, but it's a great spot year-round.

This park is truly a Richmond treasure and a nice escape from the city. The highlights include the beautiful Dooley mansion with the well landscaped Italian and Japanese gardens. It is always nice to take a tour of the mansion; make sure to pay attention to the stained glass, those are Tiffany. If you are taking your children out, be... More

The kids will love the petting zoo and they really do have a pretty good selection of animals and diversified flora. Make sure to pack a picnic basket, nearest restaurant is over the Nickle bridge on Forest Hill ave or up the Boulevard to Broad St.

Maymont is a beautiful place to get away from the stress of daily life. In spring the flowers are beautiful, children are playing in the fields, and the animals are out. Great place for walking, picnicking, or just relaxing.

Nice house and garden, plus there is a visitor center with displays including lively otters. Worth an hour or so.

A very family friendly park. Not only is it historical it has a great animal section for the kids and a wonderful Japanese garden for adults. Always and enjoyable time. Great for a family day out at the park and for a picnic.
