Cope Bennett Park is situated along the Nanticoke River in Sharptown, Maryland, about 15 minutes from Salisbury. The spacious park provides a unique view of the Route 313 bridge as it crosses the river dividing Wicomico and Dorchester counties.

The walking path is a 1,000 foot greenways trail which was added in 2009 as part of the Cope Bennett/Cherry Beach Master Plan. The path now connects the two parks, leading under the bridge to Cherry Beach Park, which provides another playground, a small beach area, large pavilion, boat ramp and fishing pier.

Cope Bennett Park is not maintained by the Recreation, Parks & Tourism, but it is still considered a county park as significant funding was provided in its development through Maryland's Program Open Space.
