A Cozy City Park
Cylburn Arboretum is a lovely Baltimore city park located conveniently a few miles north of Druid Hill Park at 4915 Greenspring Avenue, the road that cuts through Druid Hill. Cylburn features a rich collection of 15 gardens scattered around the Mansion House. Seasonal flowers include roses, daylilies, dahlias, daffodils and other flowers. The 207-acre park is free and open all year. The gate opens at 8 a.m. and closes at 5 p.m. The preserve is closed Mondays. People can walk on paved paths by lawns and trees and on three miles of dirt trails in woods. The Vollmer Center for visitors, open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., has exhibits, lectures, dinners and other events a few steps from ample parking.
