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

I thought the gardens would be much larger. Even though it was late August, very little was in bloom and the beds seemed neglected. Maybe other sections of the property are a real gem, but we didn't explore after being disappointed by the gardens. We went on a Sunday; the house was not open to visitors. Cylburn Arboretum was not... More

Big grass lawn, big trees, gardens toward the back. Start walking around and the collection of unusual trees became apparent. It's a real, nicely manicured, arboretum. Go there for a nice relaxation in a park or go there to really study trees and flowers. There's something to experience on many level.

This is a beautiful stop across the street from Sinai Hospital. If your stuck at the hospital and need a break its a great place to go and find some peace. Beautiful gardens and flowers.

I bicycle to Cylburn regularly using the Jones Falls Trail (JFT). There are about 15 different garden types to wander through next to an old funky mansion house. There are also a few short hiking trails. It is a great place for a picnic as well. If you are looking for plants that grow in the mid-Atlantic climate, touring the... More

What a gem. A short drive from the hustle and bustle of the Inner Harbor but it is like being in a whole different world. Visited on a Tuesday just to walk around with a friend and then returned on Wednesday to see it again. There is so much to enjoy. It is a well-cared for park with trails that... More

Another free place to enjoy picnic or woodsy walk. Pretty gardens . Take you dog on a leash. Kids are happy and safe frolicking in woods or on the expansive grounds.

This is a free park and I'm glad I kept that in mind while visiting. The mansion is closed on weekends and the greenhouses and carriage house wasn't open either. It was Memorial Day weekend so we thought that was strange. From the outside, the mansion is gorgeous though. Loved the rose gardens that were in full bloom. We took... More

If you like gardens and old mansions you will love it. There is also a museum in the carriage house with an extensive taxidermy collection. You can also picnic there.
