Welcome to Cylburn Arboretum, a 200-acre urban oasis in Baltimore City. Cylburn is a place of natural beauty and learning with hundreds of specimen trees and plantings, gorgeous gardens, wooded trails, and an historic mansion.
The Cylburn Arboretum Association is the park’s non-profit friends group, enriching and enhancing the arboretum in a variety of ways and providing programs for the community.
Cylburn’s buildings and grounds are maintained by the Horticulture Division of Baltimore City Recreation & Parks. Cylburn is also home to the Vollmer Center, the City’s greenhouses and classrooms, the Johns Hopkins Food System Lab, and the UME Baltimore City Master Gardener Program. Facilities are rented through the City – More information here.
