My grandkids love the park with the variety of activities and places to visit. They especially love the gardens. To reach the gardens it is best to park in the third parking lot closer to the mansion for ease in walking.

Beautiful, historic mansion in downtown Richmond. Great family destination. There Is a zoo, shuttle train, lovely gardens and a nature center. You can tour the house or have a picnic in a blanket on their lush lawn. Put comfortable walking shoes on. You will be doing a lot of walking! But we'll worth the effort.

This was not at all what I expected. I didn't get a chance to tour the gardens, just the main house but that alone was a visual feast for the eyes. The woodwork and history was stunning.

We enjoy strolling around Maymont. We had two adults and two young children. They were four and six. It is fun to look for animals and plant life. We took a picnic lunch and found a shady spot to eat

A 19th century estate with tours of its Gilded Age mansion, gardens and wildlife center. One hundred acres of seasonal flowers and very interesting collection of beautiful trees, a Japanese garden and a children's farm will please the whole family. Enjoy!

In the middle of town you wouldn't expect this vast park, but this vast park is surrounded by quaint neighborhoods all around it.

Went on a wonderfully warm spring day. Gardens, barns, walking paths and views of the river are impressive. Water wasn't turned on yet in Feb., so waterfall and some other water features not yet working.
