Located in the Potomac River off the shore of Colton's Point in St. Mary's County, this 62 acre park contains a memorial cross dedicated to the memory of the first Marylanders. On March 25, 1634, the first English settlers under the Baltimore proprietorship sailed to St. Clement's Island on the Ark and the Dove. (A replica of the Maryland Dove can be seen at Historic St. Mary's City). Boat tours to historic St. Clement's Island are offered on a daily schedule, April - October.
