Through the tireless efforts of the staff and volunteers at Maymont, the Maymont continues to be a favorite among Richmonders especially during the holiday seasons. The petting zoo is perfect for the young kids and the Japanese Garden is absolutely stunning.

Great place to visit with children. Pack some lunch for a picnic, maybe bring a stroller for younger kids as it requires a lot of walking and enjoy a day in the park. Petting zoo, Japanese garden with waterfalls and a pond with gazebo, Italian garden with beautiful roses and tulips, birds' exhibit, bears exhibit, and much more. Good any... More
