Owner description: Maymont is a 100-acre American estate, an extraordinary gift given to the community by James and Sallie Dooley who lived there from 1893 to 1925. Whether strolling in the gardens, touring the mansion or petting a goat, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

The Mansion tour is donation only for $5.00.
Very pretty mansion which gives you an introduction of the period in Virgina. Very well preserved.
Once you park the car, have to walk through the ground to get to the mansion.

As a recent transplant to Ricumond three years ago, I love Maymont! The mansion tour, the Italian and Japanese gardens, the parkland, the birds of prey, the animals, the petting zoo - wow! Plan to spend the day. I always bring visitors now and everyone wants to go back. And it's free with a suggested donation. Don't miss this great place! It will keep surprising you.

We received an excellent tour of the mansion and enjoyed walking the grounds which were beautifully decorated for the season.

this beautiful park is located near downtown with easy access from major city roads. once there you will find a petting zoo of goats/ sheep and veiw of many other animals from bears to bison. a trail allows easy access of the Japanese gardens, manmade waterfall, and plenty grassy areas for picnic's or just enjoying the park. Highly recommended if you are in the area best of all there is no charge for enjoying this wonderful park.

Being huge park in the center of the city it's easy to spend a day here. Pack a lunch and have a picnic in one of the many fields. Check out the animals enjoy nature and tour a mansion all in one stop.
