I took my nephews here and they enjoyed the Aviary, the barn/farm animal exhibit, the buffaloes, and the inside-the building animals.

Lots of space to walk around///the house is stunning as are the grounds. Parking can be a challenge but it is worth it. Very peaceful area.

I was feeling stressed from something that happened on my job..so my husband decided to take me here... the walk, animals, and scenery were so relaxing, I forgot what I was upset about. Now I take that every time I'm upset or just want to walk.. I take my grandchildren here off ten also.

I was here twice. I think, the Maymont is the best park from all Richmond's parks. The park contains the beautiful Japanese Garden, Italian part, Waterfall, Zoo and huge green glades. This place will be interesting for adults and children.

We went here because of Trip Advisor reviews and were very glad we did. The grounds were beautiful, as much a part of the experience as the house. They have bears, Raptors, Japanese gardens, and gorgeous grounds to stroll around. The guided tour of the house for only a $5.00 suggested donation was well worth it. The furnishings are opulent--complete... More

Such a wonderful place! There are so many things to see so give yourself a couple hours to wander about. Unfortunately, I was unable to visit the mansion but will definitely do so on my next visit. The Japanese gardens were my favorite and the colors of the trees were magnificent! There are wild animals which have been rescued and... More

Richmond was blessed to be given this remarkable and enchanted place in the 1920's. It is a lovely example of lovely flowers and trees in all seasons. There are examples of many of animals of VA. The Children's Farm is easy for families of young children to access. There is a visitors center which gives one information on the geography,... More

The gardens are beautiful through all seasons, and many of the special events- plant sales, summer concerts, Christmas at the house- are really worth attending. The nature center is very interesting and had especially good exhibits about the aquatic ecosystems of the James. The petting zoo and wildlife enclosures are fun, esp if you have small children. It is very... More

Maymont is simply gorgeous! Stopped there while traveling and so glad we did! My kids loved the animals and my husband & I loved the incredible Japanese garden & Italian Garden. The huge magnolia trees & giant tulip poplar were incredible to see! What a gem!

This beautiful park has it all. Gorgeous flowers, an amazing waterfall, fun trees to climb and fields to walk through. It's whimsical and interactive. I take everyone who hasn't been and they fall in love too.
