Pemberton Historical Park (trail and public water access)
Pemberton Historical Park is a gorgeous, 260 acre expanse of nature and wildlife, incredibly located just minutes from Route 50 along Pemberton Drive. Created by the Wicomico County Department of Recreation, Parks and Tourism in the 1980’s, the park surrounds Pemberton Hall which is a plantation home built in 1741 and rich in Eastern Shore history. Appropriately, the park’s mission is to provide a setting that blends together both history and the natural environment. This unique combination makes the park suitable for all types of visitors. Amenities include a nature trail system with 7 unique trails ranging from .2 to 1.1 miles, fresh water ponds with fishing allowed on a catch and release basis, public restrooms, and several picnic areas. The park also offers environmental education and nature programs led by the on-site Park Naturalist. Programs are designed for both school groups and the public. Examples of some popular nature programs open to the public include Star Gazers, Cane Poles and Fishing Holes, and Summer Nature Camp (open to children ages 4 – 14). Additionally, public tours and history programs are offered at Pemberton Hall by the Pemberton Hall Foundation.
