Cypress Park sits on the Pocomoke River, adjacent to the Market Street drawbridge and tower. Flowering cherry trees are in full bloom at Cypress Park in early spring. Pack a lunch and take in the view of our scenic Pocomoke River and river walk.

Nature Trail

The city’s Nature Trail begins along the city docks in Cypress Park. Visitors can walk or run along the trail while enjoying the beauty of their surroundings.

The River

The Pocomoke River has been designated by the State of Maryland as a Wild and Scenic river, and continues to be the centerpiece of our community. It is the deepest river for its width east of the Mississippi. While canoeing or boating on the river, visitors can observe beautiful Cypress trees and wildlife, like turtles, deer, rare bald eagles, and many other bird species.


Boat slips are available in Cypress Park on the Pocomoke River. Boaters can take advantage of recent updates to the city docks, as well as free dockage, adjacent to the Riverside Grill restaurant. The docks now offer a 50-amp power source with up to two days of free docking, if boats register just a few blocks away at City Hall. Additionally, they may use one of two free boat ramps located at Winter Quarters Drive and at Laurel Street.

Boaters travelling to Pocomoke City from elsewhere on the Chesapeake Bay would travel up the Pocomoke Sound to the scenic Pocomoke River, and then to Pocomoke City. Fuel is available nearby, but boaters are advised to refuel at Crisfield before entering the Pocomoke River to avoid any possible inconvenience.

All visiting boaters must register with City Hall, at 101 Clarke Avenue. Visitors are allowed two days of free dockage at the downtown city docks. To find out more details on availability and prices for boat slips, please call City Hall at 410-957-1333.


Amateur, novice and expert fishermen will find the tidal Pocomoke uniquely challenging. Yellow and white perch, eel, gar, sunfish, pickerel, catfish, crappie, bluegill, herring, spot croakers, bluefish and largemouth bass will tease and taunt the best of the rod'n'reelers. Certain areas of the river banks have been designated as Free Fishing Areas where no Chesapeake Bay Sport Fishing License is required. The free fishing areas include only the river banks where so marked. Fishing from a craft requires a license.
