A Must Go Richmond Spot 5/5/2008

We go to Maymont several times a year, if not nearly every month. They have a barnyard with animals, some injured wild animals, a fantastic exhibit with otters and other native aquatic life, historical buildings, and amazing gardens. \r \r The reason I gave it only 4 stars is because in the last few years it seems the barnyard is not what it used to be. The animal food dispensers have been either done away with or are put away when I am there, and they have very few animals out - mostly goats and a couple of cows. They used to have peacocks, rabbits, chickens, horses, and a feature on square foot gardening.\r \r Currently there is quite a bit of construction going on to add what looks like a new aviary section. I believe it will be worth it. Pros: Go at your own pace, wide variety of sights, beautiful grounds, no set price. Cons: Get ready to walk - a lot. more

Overall Great Experience!! 4/9/2008

I have been going to maymont since I was a kid. From school field trips to weekend adventures with friends and family. It is good for all ages! From the fun petting area where you can feed the animals to the beautiful italian gardens, this place is a great time! The japanese garden has a great bamboo forest you can climb through or even stop to feed the ducks (bring bread!). Tons of wonderuful animal and attractions!\r \r Weddings are beautiful here. I am planning a Saturday afternoon wedding with carriage ride in the italian gardens. If you decide to have a wedding here, book way in advance because spots will fill up quickly! A great place to throw a frisbee with family or have a picnic. With all the things to do, you will want to come back for more! Pros: family fun, kid-friendly, ambience, attractions, Cons: parking, more
