Have a couple of hours to spare? Then make a trip to Maymont to see the great house tour and make time to stroll through the gardens. The Japanese Garden is beautiful and tranquil and is a favorite of ours.

As a Richmond native, I have frequented this beautiful park often. I went there as a kid and as an adult I took my kids there. They have carriage rides, a petting zoo, and an a nature center about the local river and its animals. They have huge open lawns that we picnic in almost every time we go. The... More

Lived here for 24 years and finally went when my daughter came home from college on a cloudy day. Beautiful pictures from the experience, great time walking and talking and seeing the flowers and landscape and buildings. Its FREE....just take good walking shoes and water if its in the Summer.

They have the best Japanese Garden in Richmond and they do sponsor some great events as well. Even during bad weather, it's a must see.

The Mansion was the reason we visited Maymont - fans of Downton Abbey will find the upstairs/downstairs aspect familiar and still very interesting. We took part in the last tour of the day and I wish we'd had more time to see the downstairs exhibit (self guided tour). The Japanese Garden is also worth strolling through.

Maymont is a beautifully restored and maintained piece of history in Richmond. The grounds and gardens are beautiful and well maintained. The mansion which belonged to the Dooley family dates from the late 1880s and is rich in Italian and French ornate decor influences.

This is a beautiful park to walk through. The KOI garden is very peaceful and serene. The walk back up the hill can be strenuous if you are not used to walking.
