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

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.

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
