This is a large area covering a major portion of Guilford Neighborhood. It is a beautiful green garden with a variety of colorful flowering plants and also rare herbs and medicinal bushes. The main attraction here is the variety of around 80000 tulips that grow here. The flowers are mostly seen during the months of April and May and after that when the season goes down the tulip bulbs are available for sale to general public.
This estate where we have the park now was once owned by a famous man named A.S. Abell who was an entrepreneur and chairman of a famous company. The location was then just a piece of bare land with a pond that was to be given away to builders for making of a housing society. In the year 1920, another businessman started using it as his garden and growing tulips there. He also allowed visitors to come and praise his cultivation during autumn. After his death the Sherwood Gardens was taken up by the Guilford Association and modified as a proper garden like what we see now.
Sherwood Gardens is a 6-acre park located in the city of Baltimore. Sherwood Gardens was created by John W. Sherwood in 1920s. Mr. Sherwood planted many tulips that he had imported from the Netherlands. Back in those days, Sherwood Gardens had become the most famous tulip garden in North America. After Mr. Sherwood’s death, the gardens were purchased by the Guilford Association and today, approximately 80,000 tulip bulbs are planted annually along with many other spring flowers like flowering cherries, wisteria and magnolias.

Sherwood Gardens Reviews & Ratings
What a beautiful park! Loved walking around here with my boyfriend on my birthday. I would have loved it if there were benches so we could sit down once in a while.
It is the neighborhood's pride and marvellously maintained. Although tulip season is a crowd pleaser, I like it more for its calmness the rest of the year. The only improvement I would suggest here is may be a few trashcans on the corner.
It's springtime. Even though the weather does not feel like it. We found a community garden located not far from John Hopkins university in Baltimore, Md., that is a perfect hideaway from city life. There is a major open air green space with thousands if blooming daffodils and other bulbs. At my time of visit, the tulips were not blooming. There are trees that the children are climbing and benches for reflection. Bring a picnic basket and blanket, your children and dogs and spend some time outside. Enjoy the smells of the flowers and live life.
Best kept secret in Baltimore. Always a great destination on our dog walks.
A wonderful and popular place to see flowers. In mid April, the tulips are up and look fantastic.
