Stop and Smell the Roses at Sherwood Gardens

Posted May 28th, 2021

It’s blooming season! That means Sherwood Gardens is bursting with colors and springtime floral scents that will awaken your senses that were dormant all winter. The gardens are known for their tulips, with over 80,000 blooms on the grounds. Peak bloom season is typically the last week in April to the first week in May depending on the year. The gardens have a unique history. They were originally designed by businessman John Sherwood as gardens to complement his home. He was no pro, but when locals started to stare in awe, he opened them up to the public and the rest was history—that was in the 1930s!

The gardens are open to the public 365 days a year and are always beautiful, but springtime is extra special. There is no fee to enter the gardens, which is incredible—but you can donate if the spirit moves you! The gardens are just around the corner from Homewood Museum, Johns Hopkins Archaeological Museum, and Baltimore Museum of Art & Sculpture Garden, if you want to make a day of it! Be sure to bring your camera to capture the beauty that surrounds you.
