    The animals; All of them are injured and could not survive in the wild. This isn't a zoo--it's more akin to a resting home and care facility for them. The park is free, and the gardens amazing!

    The Japanese Gardens is where it's at, though be forewarned, in winter the waterfall is a water#fail. (I apologize for this awful joke.)

    Sprawling acreage dedicated to the wildlife of Virginia. Easy to get lost, but around the corner, could be the coveted Japanese Gardens.

    One of Richmond's favorite outdoor settings, Maymont offers walking paths, gardens and over 100 species of animals living on the grounds. Don't forget to bring quarters for the animal feed dispensers!
