Maybe the best walking area in Richmond. It has hills, animals, a Japanese and Italian gardens, mansion and plenty of room to wander and relax. It is a must see while in Richmond.

This trail was a perfect mid morning walk. I am visiting a friend in the neighborhood who doesn't have much experience with hiking. after reviewing the maps and others experiences I thought this would be a perfect place. I was expecting water features as well as a waterfall, however since I was visiting in February all of these were dried up. the wildlife animals were an unexpected surprise. I would love to visit during the fall to see all of the changes in the trees and bushes.

A relaxing stroll through Maymont Park. I Saw hawks, one perched in a tree and another feasting on a squirrel. I took some pics hopefully they came out half way decent. Overcast day with a few sprinkles but still in the fifties. Flowers are already in bloom! Nice to connect with God through nature!

Went here for a date, we walked the entire trail and more of the park, took photos of all of the beautiful botanicals, the animals they had, (although I think they should just get rid of that part entirely) and we even accidentally broke the law by trespassing into an area we weren't supposed to go. (we were really tired and we were trying to cut through) We got caught, and the lady just told us to never do it again. Very kind people. I've even been back there since and everything is fine with me and the very nice lady. I recommend this park.

Beautiful place to explore! It’s a huge area with animals, gardens, and beautiful trees to have picnics under. Make sure you wear some good walking shoes! This place can be crowded depending on the weather and season. Wish you could bring your fur babies.

It's beautiful just to walk around especially in the Japanese garden. I loved the animals and the kid farm they had for the children. The house still stands tall and is a beauty to look at. I'm definitely coming back to explore again.

Basically enter Maymont and run around aimlessly because there is no signage.

Very pretty and serene. I only got to visit the garden trails, not the animal farm. But its gorgeous a hike, definitely recommend checking it out. You can even have a picnic or something overlooking the Japanese garden!!
