About Maymont Park, Richmond

The Maymont Estate is a historic landmark in Richmond. Prior to it being declared a public park, it was a 100 acre mansion belonging to James and Sallie Dooley.

Apart from the grand 33 room house, the property also sports a Japanese Garden, wildlife exhibits, Children’s Farm and a Nature Visitor Centre to name a few. The best way to see a majority of the estate would be to take the hop on hop off tram to different points in the park and then opt for a guided tour of the mansion.

  • Maymont is the most beautiful and unusual park and it's free! It is the first place I take out if town guests. There are paths for walking, a small zoo for the kids and many grown ups, a children's farm with goats and other animals, always popular with families. The landscaping is outstanding, I love the Japanese garden with the round hopping stone across the pond, the arched bridge and the waterfall! I love the Herbs Galore festival, it's a huge gathering of herb growers. Takes place on a weekend the second part of April. I get my herbs for the year, it's full if knowledgeable and friendly folks to help you decide which herbs are best for your needs. Then I like to get a savory Gluten Free crepe from Monique 's Crepes. :-)

  • Maymont Estate is a hundred acre historic estate in Richmond, Virginia offering numerous trails cutting through varied terrain. The various gardens are incredible, as are the woodlands, with something blooming at every season. There's also a mini zoo/petting zoo as well as a historic home to tour. Just off RT 95, Maymont is convenient for those logging long miles on the thruway needing to stretch their legs. I've been several times and keep going back. It's really lovely.

  • Maymont is my favorite park in Richmond. It's a wonderful place to take the kids to burn off energy in the outdoors. A perfect place for a picnic. Kids can explore, run, roll down grassy hills, explore and climb thru the bamboo jungle, learn about nature, see huge fish up close and watch otters play. They should be exhausted by the time you get back to the car. It is amusement park in nature at it's best. It is a WONDERFUL place to go for a walk. It's hilly - but there are paths for wheel chairs and unsteady walkers and you can make it work if you need to. Take the little ones in the farm entrance to see and feed the animals. Take the slightly bigger ones in the nature center entrance ($4 donation) to see the otters play as well as to see other cool nature exhibits. Don't miss the Herbs and More event in April if you are a gardener. Seriously - DO NOT MISS it. Note: Dogs are not allowed in the park BUT that does mean you can roll around in the grass pretty safely.

  • My children love this place! I bring them here when the weather is cool enough to enjoy walking the grounds. Finding a cozy spot to sit and eat our packed lunch is a simple task as Maymont has tons of cozy places all around. The petting farm is the highlight for my youngest littles and my older ones love to "search for" the bison as we make our way up and down the rolling hills. I enjoy snapping photos of them amongst the flowers and in the weeping willows. If you're looking for a place to enjoy the beauty of nature, Maymont Park is a great choice. Just bring a donation, some snacks, and your walking shoes and you're good to go!

  • The property and Mansion are beautiful. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. It is great place to bring children as there are animals they can feed and pet. Also, the grounds are perfect for having a picnic and strolling. If one wants to tour the upper floors of the mansion a $5 donation is suggested. I feel my $5 donation was worth it, and I will be definitely be returning for more visits.
