Since I liked the Conservatory it was suggested we go see the Cylburn, same architect designed the mansion there. From a distance one could tell this was a grand place in it's day however it is in need of some tender loving care. The Parks and Recreation operates it now and they must not have much money to keep it... More

What a treasure of beautiful walking paths and flowers. The landscaping is freshened each season and it's a great place to enjoy the outdoors.

Take a nice walk along the paths and watch the birds as they play. There are classes where they inform you of the diversity of trees located throughout the park and within the local area. There are many more Champion Trees around the area, than I initially thought. The historic mansion is still standing and open for public viewing.

Cylburn Arboretum is our own park (207 acres) in Baltimore City. It a secret place with 3 miles of trails, that meander through formal gardens, enchanting wooded areas carpeted with seasonal flowers, and past the 1836 Cylburn Mansion. It is up to you to find your own magic. Take a fine bag lunch (picnic tables are available) and enjoy the... More

Drove 60-miles (from Fairfax, VA) to visit Cylburn Arboretum in Baltimore, but was disappointed overall. Firstly, Mansion on grounds is only open Tuesday-Friday (very inconvenient and unnecessarily-restrictive schedule to those who have weekday lives outside tourist-trips). I believe this is designed such that they can advertise it on the website, but ultimately deny viewing to the public on the most... More

We toured the property for a potential wedding venue. The grounds are beautiful, but the staff was quite unfriendly. It was a beautiful Saturday morning, not sure why so hostile. But the house and grounds themselves are lovely.

I was very impressed by the beautiful grounds of the Clybrun Arboretum, as well as the walking paths, the visitor center, the blooming trees, bushes, and flowers, the stately mansion, etc. I don't know how anyone could find fault in such a gorgeous property/facility that offers so much, and at no charge - even the parking was free. This place... More

Wonderful gardens amongst the magnificent trees. Nice visitors center and friendly people. Loved the "insect/bird/mammals" house. Lots of surprises at this Arboretum. Be ready to stroll around for a couple of hours. I think they should have a "Tea Room" on the premises. It would be a perfect compliment to the gardens.

The grounds and gardens of this place are beautiful and very well kept. If you like nature and picture taking you should definately visit Cylburn. It is a nice place to picnic or to take a walk. There are many trails that are covered by trees in case you get one of those warm summer days. This place sometimes host... More
