This is a beautiful area. It's surprising to see in the middle of a large city. The gardens were well maintained and spacious. There is also a wooded area with some trails for moderate hiking. There were some very beautiful flowers blooming in the gardens. We were able to find a few geocaches within the park. It's completely free and... More

This attraction is in the city but not downtown. In the spring it is filled with flowers. Birds also like to stop here for awhile. There are paths taking you through gardens. Also makes for a good destination in the fall.

Cylburn Arboretum was better than I had expected. While it's surrounded by woods with a secluded feel in the city, I didn't notice too many interesting trees. The gardens, however, were excellent. There were so many different types of flowers in bloom in late spring. There are trails for hiking in the woods, too. While it looked open, I didn't... More

I couldn't wait to get to Cylburn. Had wanted to go for over a year. It was really depressing and a huge disappointment. Mansion was obviously beautiful at one time but has not been kept up and has been painted with some awful, obviously cheap paint. The grounds seemed to be in terrible shape. Maybe June is not the time... More

If you are a nature lover, do take this in. We're avid tree, flower and vegetable gardeners and enjoyed these grounds (and the wedding string quartet playing while we were there!)

the arb tries hard and is well kept with nice trails, but you can always hear the Jones Falls expressway in the background - go al little farther out of the city to have a walk in the country

I wanted a nice place to walk and do some reading and thinking about things in a natural environment. This was just the place to do so. I had printed out a trail map before hand, and sort of knew what trail I wanted to take. There are easy, moderate level trails, nicely laid out. The trails are not paved,... More

We attended a memorable and wonderful wedding here in April. The setting in the Arboretum was natural and beautiful. The dinner and dancing was in the Vollmer Center and worked very well for the approximately 140 guests. More guests than that would have been tight.

First off let me start off with that the venue was gorgeous for a wedding, the service however was not. We started off meeting with Mr. Jones, who was wonderful, and unfortunately no longer works at the venue. However, Ms. Boswell became involved in our wedding process and brought nothing but complications. We arranged for a date in July for... More
