Palmer Park is an unincorporated community in Prince George's County, Maryland, United States, within the census-designated place of Landover. Palmer Park is served by the Landover Metro Station (orange line), which is northwest of Palmer Park across Landover Road. Comedian Martin Lawrence once lived in Palmer Park while attending Eleanor Roosevelt High School in nearby Greenbelt. Palmer Park was the hometown of 1976 Olympics gold medal winning boxer Sugar Ray Leonard. Palmer Park is home to the Palmer Park Senior Housing, Prince George's County Police Headquarters (District III), and is located right across from Prince George's Sports and Learning Complex and FedExField, home of the three-time Super Bowl champion Washington Redskins. Palmer Park is surrounded by four local schools: William Paca Elementary School, Kenmoor Elementary, Kenmoor Middle School, and Mathew Henson Elementary. The neighborhood high schools are DuVal Senior School and Charles Herbert Flowers Senior High School. Right at the heart of Palmer Park are small stores that include a mini mart, gas station, hair salon, Boys and Girls Club offices, and a doctor's office. In addition to the stores, Palmer Park Community Center is located right across the street. The community is home to the Palmer Park Tigers, and holds an annual Palmer Park day in order to promote community spirit. Palmer Park was adjacent to Wilson Dairy Farm. FedEx Field is now located on what used to be the farm in the 1950s and 1960s. Palmer Park was an enclave of post-World War II triplex housing units designed as starter homes for young low-income families (less than $13K). It is surrounded by three parks. It was predominantly white (99%) until segregation ended and blockbusting began in the 1960s. Within approximately two years, the community went from predominantly white to predominantly black. A lawsuit was filed for blockbusting and was won by the former residents in the late 1960s. Despite its colorful history, it has been home to successful politicians, athletes, and artists.

J.C. Lore Oyster House

J. C. Lore Oyster House, also known as J. C. Lore and Sons, Inc., Seafood Packing Plant, is located at 14430 Solomons Island Road South, in Solomons, Calvert County, Maryland. It is a large two story, rectangular frame industrial building constructed in 1934 as a seafood packing plant. It replaced a 1922 building that was destroyed by the 1933 Chesapeake Potomac hurricane. It is significant for its historical association with the commercial fisheries of Maryland's Patuxent River region, and architecturally as a substantially unaltered example of an early-20th century seafood packing plant. It has been adapted by the Calvert Marine Museum to house exhibits and many of its original spaces, artifacts, and records have been incorporated into them. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984, and declared a National Historic Landmark in 2001.

Wye Oak State Park

The remains of the Wye Oak supporting its clone The Wye Oak was the largest white oak tree in the United States and the State Tree of Maryland from 1941 until its demise in 2002. Wye Oak State Park preserves the site where the revered tree stood for more than 400 years in the town of Wye Mills, Talbot County, Maryland. The Wye Oak was believed to be over 460 years old at the time of its destruction during a severe thunderstorm on June 6, 2002. It measured in circumference of the trunk at breast height, high, with a crown spread of . It is believed that the acorn that became the oak germinated around the year 1540. The Wye Oak was still bearing a maturing crop of acorns when it was toppled. The Wye Oak drew public attention in 1909, when Maryland State Forester Fred W. Besley made the first official measurement of the tree. Ten years later, in 1919, it was featured in American Forestry magazine as the first tree in the American Forestry Association's "Tree Hall of Fame." The Wye Oak inspired Besley to found the Big Tree Champion Program in 1925; as a result, in 1940 the American Forestry Association named the Wye Oak one of its first National Champion Trees. By the time of its destruction 62 years later, only one other tree named that year remained standing. The tree faced a loss of a large limb in 1956 that sparked concerns, and another limb fell in 1984 that weighed 70,280 lbs. The tree fell during a heavy thunderstorm with high winds on the night of June 6, 2002. The tree's exceptionally long life has been attributed to the efforts of park managers, who applied preventative measures such as fertilizer and insecticide, as well as extensive pruning, cabling, and bracing to the branches.
