Loved this event and wish we had something near our home like it. An alternative to an egg hunt - kids move at their own pace and still get eggs. Beautiful estate and grounds with petting zoo.

Whether you are a native or a tourist, Maymont is a must! Be ready to walk and it is worth every step. It is hilly so be prepared. The wildlife center is a must. The otters are our favorite! Enjoyable for the whole family!

The grounds are gorgeous and well kept. Nice walking path. Beware, lots of steep hills, but benches scattered through out for a rest. Beautiful place for photos and a picnic.

We went here only because of the great reviews we saw on Trip Advisor. Now I see why. I had lived in Richmond for over 2 years, years ago, and never thought to go here. It is a hidden gem. Unfortunately, we only had 1.5 hours here before the park closed, which I thought would have been enough time, but... More

Maymont consists of multiple, different areas. We were enchanted by the Japanese Garden with its tall waterfall coming down natural rocks. The Italian Garden was lovely but paled next to the Japanese one. There are many other areas, come of which are geared to young children and there were many there. In addition to the specific gardens, it was a... More

Really enjoyed the day with my boys at Maymont. They have great trees for climbing. We loved the Japanese gardens with the giant fish in the pond. Lots of rocks to climb, too. Great way to spend the day outside and get some exercise. We took a blanket and had a picnic.

I always visited Maymont for the Beautiful sites, animals and for a good walk. I had no idea that we could also rent out space for events. Ours was a company picnic that was totally amazing and beautiful. Im sure a wedding would be even more beautiful, especially during the Spring. It was very nice!

Maymont park has always been one of Richmonds beautiful attraction but the jazz festival really does bring out the true beauty of the park and Richmond as a whole...Dont miss out!
