Emperor's Landing Park
Emperor's Landing Park is a central gateway to the Nanticoke River and watershed, located a short distance from U.S. Route 50 on the Dorchester banks of the Nanticoke River in Vienna, Maryland. A historically significant area dating from Native American times, the park offers long sweeping vistas of the Dorchester and Wicomico marshlands. The area was first recorded by Captain John Smith on his 1608 voyage of exploration of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. The town was founded in 1709 and later became an important customs district and port of entry for river and bay commerce.

Emperor's Landing Park was created to preserve and interpret the historical, cultural, and environmental legacy of the river and bay.

Hours: The park is open dawn to dusk, year round.
Fees: There are no park fees.
