I forgot I was in tue city at Clyburn. A perfect location for a scenic walk, the biodiversity of the plant and animal life is just what you need to recharge yourself after the stresses of the city. very peaceful, clean and scenic

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

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.
