Relaxing On A Sunday Afternoon At Maymont Park In Richmond Virginia

Anytime it is 67 degrees in early February, it is a Maymont Park day if you live in Richmond, Virginia, which we do, so we went to the park.  Oscar and Olivia went with us.  This post is my answer to a ‘bench‘ challenge I saw on Sylvia’s blog although, her work is not shown here.

Maymont Park has lots of benches and places to sit down and rest awhile between hills. This is one of those places.

After you’ve gone up and down a few Maymont hills it is nice to find a place to sit down. Sometimes you have to look twice.  Look at the bench  (above) we found lurking in the woodpile.

    1. Believe it or not, that bench is made of metal and made to look like wood. I think it serves as a retaining wall, as well as a bench. Maymont is such a wonderful place to go. I need to do a bunch more posts on the park and what they are all about. I wish the Dooley’s could somehow know how much the world has enjoyed their gift, and how lovingly the park has been maintained throughout the years. I’ve been trying to fix the links so that I can link all of the Maymont/ Swannanoh posts together for whoever is interested in checking them out. :)

  1. It does appear to be wood. And it’s too funny having a group picture, no one can seem to say cheese all at once especially children.

    BTW I am having difficulty getting the orange button to follow the advernture.

    1. I am having a horrible time with my links since I switched blogs, and I am not sure quite sure why — yet. It has something to do with my Jetpack options. I post once a day, though, so there’s always something new. :) I’d love it if you would check us out when you can.

      That bench is a work of art, but I’m sure it is there for more than one reason. The landscapers at Maymont have obviously put a lot of thought into maintenance and comfort for the public’s enjoyment and the park’s preservation.
