This place is more like a nice park with a mansion in it that's open for visitors most of the time. The park has nice bathrooms and trails. It doesn't compare to the national arboretum in DC, but that one is probably in a class by itself.

The Cylburn Arboretum website states that "our arboretum is a living museum of trees and shrubs." I think they are selling themselves short. We visited on a recent Saturday on our way to a destination a little farther north. It was easy to find. There is no admission charge. Their summer hours are extensive, 8-8, but closed on Mondays. We... More

This site features a historic 19th century mansion which you can tour, as well as beautiful gardens, and hiking trails through wooded terrain. It's well maintained and a beautiful place to explore for an afternoon stroll or hike.

As a public garden professional myself I hesitate to critique the efforts of other gardeners. With that in mind I'll begin by saying that Cylburn is a beautiful, large (200+ acres) property. There is an historic mansion built in the mid 19th century that is quite nice. The few persons I communicated with on the day of my visit were... More

I'm fortunate to live close to the Cylburn Arboretum. It's open from 8 am to 8 pm and there is lots of free parking so it's easy to be there for great morning or evening light. The gardens are well taken care of and well designed. There is always something in bloom. They have some wild gardens and wonderful big... More

The love and care from the Hopkins trust shows at this park. All of the plants, trees, and flowers are labeled with their real and scientific names. There is a path along the outside of the mansion that has even more arbor life and assortment. Its clean, well kept, and absolutely a must to see while in Baltimore if you... More

This romantic and usually somewhat secluded spot is right in Baltimore City. The arboretum comes complete with bee farming, 100 year old boxwoods, nature trails, extensive labeled gardens and a gorgeous old mansion. Ideal for a quiet picnic date or a dog walk. There are bags for dog waste and trashcans. A nature center has lots of info on local... More

Well, it's fall and there isn't much in bloom. Nonetheless there were changing leaves and pleasant trails to cross.

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.
