Guilford Sherwood Gardens TulipsIf you're looking for something to do this spring or summer in Guilford (one of Baltimore's most prestigous areas) , head over to Sherwood Gardens. This six-acre park is a beautiful garden where you can soak in the sight and smells of the season. Pack a picnic or grab your camera and head to Guilford to see the beauty of this small but colorful garden space.

History of the Gardens

The land that is now Sherwood Gardens was once part of the A.S. Abell estate. A. S. Abell was the founder of The Baltimore Sun, and the land the gardens now sit on was once a pond. In 1912 developers filled in the pond to make more space for residential properties. In the 1920s, John W. Sherwood, who owned a home in the area, began planting a beautiful garden on the open land, importing trees and plants from around the country. He opened the garden for tours each May and began planting tulips imported directly from the Netherlands.

When Sherwood died in 1965, the Guilford Association took over the gardens and opened them to the public. They also began expanding them to the current six-acre size. Today, people can tour the gardens year round, but tulip season, the gardens' most colorful season, remains a highlight.

April Means Tulip Season

One of the highlights of Sherwood Gardens is the tulips that bloom in April. Towards the end of the month the tulips will be at their peak, with nearly 80,000 colorful blooms opening to welcome spring officially. When they are done blooming, residents of Guilford Baltimore can visit the garden and dig up a bulb or two to purchase to plant in their own yards and gardens.

Color All Season Long

While the tulips may be a highlight, they are not the only flowering plant in this Guilford Baltimore garden. Throughout the spring and summer you can see English boxwoods, brilliant azaleas, flowering cherry trees, magnolias and dogwoods. Once the spring flowers are done, the Guilford Association and its many volunteers swoop in to plant annuals to give the garden more color throughout the summer. Rare trees are also abundant throughout the garden. Some of these specimens date back to the 18th century, having been transplanted from colonial estates during Mr. Sherwood's lifetime.

How to Get to Guilford's Sherwood Gardens

To reach the gardens, visitors need to turn onto East Highfield Road, heading east, traveling one block past St. Paul Street. The gardens are tucked between East Highfield, Stratford and Underwood Roads. The garden has no fences, gates or admission fee, so you are free to come and go as you please to see the beautiful plants.

Guilford houses some of the most beatiful homes in Baltimore.  It's no wonder more and more people are considering making the move to this Baltimore neighborhood. As you prepare to move to Guilford, trust the team at Prudential Homesale YWGC to help you find the perfect home.
