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.

Definitely one of the most beautiful & unique public parks in Richmond. All the buildings on the grounds are beautiful. The waterfall, gardens, stairs, koy pond... All of it just kept in top shape & absolutely gorgeous. This is also free, just ask for a $5 donation when touring the house. Which is worth seeing. Long trail with beautiful scenery... More

Really great park. They have tours of the mansion for the history buffs, the various gardens for the outdoor buffs, animals and petting zoos for the kids (or kids at heart!) And miles of trails around the 100 acres of land. Great for fling out of town guests, something to do on a weekend afternoon, a date, or with the... More

My husband and I have been to Maymont on at least four occasions and we have enjoyed each time. Two of the occasions were for the Herbs Galore & More event (2013 & 2014). This is going to be annual tradition for us. It is not just for the variety of plants available for purchase, but also to be able... More

We visited this place for about 4 times since October of last year and I must stay we get to see something new each time. Be prepared to walk a lot as it's a HUGE park. I wish that their tour times for the mansion is available the whole day on weekends where visitors are at its peak. 4 times... More

The grounds alone are worth the trip. You need to get an entrance ticket to tour the mansion, it was one of the best home tours ever. The tour guides are very knowledgeable. The childless couple that owned the home have a very interesting story. They donated the home as it was when the owner died with all furnishings in... More

Really enjoyed visiting this site. The house was very interesting and our guide informative. We took the tram to look around the estate as one of our party could not walk the distance. This worked very well Would definitely suggest taking a picnic as there was very limited food or drink on offer.

Maymont has something for everyone; a petting zoo, beautiful italian rose gardens, the Dooley mansion is magnificent, and the grounds are magnificent so bring your walking shoes. Definitely a place for the entire family.

Our grandchildren had a grand time feeding the animals and getting up close to the farm animals. It's a beautiful setting for a lovely couple of hours with young children.

The tour guide said that this home has 95% of the original furnishings. Most of the mansions that I have toured were lucky to have a few good pieces here and there. We had a good tour of the Dooley's home learning about them and their lifestyle. I liked they manikins displaying the clothing worn for the morning, day, and... More
