Mothers’ Garden is located at the NW corner of Clifton Park on Harford Road between Erdman Ave and 29th Street. It was established in 1926 to honor Baltimore’s moms at a dedication ceremony that attracted over 6000 people. The five acre garden consists of original stone structures including numerous staircases and paths, a pergola, rest pavilion, and a Japanese styled bridge that once spanned a lily pond. Numerous flower beds feature dozens of blooming botanicals year-round, and shaded walkways and benches offer visitors a peaceful refuge from city life. The Friends of Mothers’ Garden Association is a 501(c)(3) community charity dedicated to the conservation, promotion, and sustainable use of the garden.
