“Lovely to visit any time of year”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Cylburn has been upgraded in the last few years, and is more beautiful than ever. Fortunately I don't live far away, so when we are eager for a walk that won't mean driving for miles, we can head to Cylburn. I often go there to paint, as do many other artists. The new visitor center is great as well. There are trails through the woods, though they are not very long. Spring is gorgeous. Market Day in May is a wonderful time to buy plants for your garden, and in December there are fabulous poinsettias and green for sale. I visit frequently, and it is free of course.

“Hidden Treasure”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Beautiful, relaxing gardens and historic site tucked away in the middle of the city. I love coming here in all seasons to walk the grounds and see what nature has to offer.

“Little known gem”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

We usually go here once or twice a year.It is almost next to the Maryland Zoo.The buildings are beautiful and the plant displays are amazing.In the bloom the outdoor gardens give off a wonderful aroma (so do the indoor flowers).One of the unique things here is the sundial.It will tell you the time for places all over the world.In the spring the tulips planted in front are fantastic.I only wish I lived closer.The attraction is free but a donation is nice.There are plans to greatly increase the gardens but with the current economy it might take awhile.Do not miss this place.
