Why You Should Visit Maymont

One of Richmond’s prettiest destinations

One of Richmond’s most beloved destinations, Maymont is a 100-acre estate and public park that was gifted to the community by James and Sallie Dooley – who resided there between 1893 to 1925. And in the summer, it’s especially beautiful. You can tour the mansion for a history lesson, leisurely stroll the impeccably maintained Japanese and Italian gardens, or watch river otters play in the Nature Center. Maymont is one of those increasingly rare spots that can be enjoyed by people of all ages, young and old. So bring a friend, or bring family – just come!
