Cedynia Landscape Park (Cedyński Park Krajobrazowy) is a protected area (Landscape Park) in north-western Poland, bordering Germany. It was established on 1 April 1993, by order of the governor (voivode) of the then Szczecin Voivodeship. The Park covers an area of 308.5 square kilometres (119.1 sq mi). It also has a buffer zone (otulina) covering 531.2 square kilometres (205.1 sq mi).

The Park lies within West Pomeranian Voivodeship, in Gryfino County (Gmina Cedynia, Gmina Chojna, Gmina Mieszkowice and Gmina Moryń). Its buffer zone also includes parts of Gmina Trzcińsko-Zdrój and Gmina Widuchowa). The Park lies on the Polish side of part of the lower stretches of the Oder (Odra) river.

The Park's managing authority is called Zespół Parków Krajobrazowych Doliny Dolnej Odry ("Complex of Landscape Parks of the Lower Odra Valley"). The same authority oversees the Lower Odra Valley Landscape Park, Szczecin Landscape Park and Ujście Warty Landscape Park.

Within the Landscape Park are seven nature reserves.
