I had heard of the arboretum. I was in the area so I took a look. It was a nice oasis in the city although there were a few spots that could use some tidying up. Some of the trails are not marked well either....More

The arboretum is a bit small, and not too exotic, you can take your time and still spend less then 1 hour which is good for small childrens attention. Ample parking. You can spend more time walking thru the park outside. Admision is a $5...More

I can't believe it took me over 10 years to find out about Cylburn Arboretum! I went hiking here yesterday for the first time and it was a wonderful experience! The hiking trails were well-marked, even with the leaves falling, and the scenery was beautiful....More

I asked at the Visitor center. They poinyed out locations of picnic tables, but invited us to spread a blanket anywhere or sit pn the grass if we wished. The staff isn't stuffy, and they are helpful to inquirers.
