At first visitors might simply think this is just another city park. The reality is this park has so much to offer for most any type of event or function... or simply play. Located in downtown Ft Myers, Centennial Park has great parking, plenty of grass for play, swings and slides, covered event area, fishing piers, and even a boat... More

I ride my bike around there and there are things to rent to do the same thing. There are small waterparks for the kids and they have a farmers market on Fridays that is just wonderful.

The main thing you will remember from your walk through this beautiful park is the large statue of these three great American leaders. After a visit to the Ford/Edison estate it was recommended we visit Centennial park. Easy walking along the waterfront and eventually leads you to the historic district which is a must visit. The town fathers have done... More

We especially like the Edison, Ford, Firestone statue. These people are extremely interesting if you look into the background. This park is very relaxing to stroll thru at a leisurely pace on a warm day.

This is a pretty park on the Caloosahatchee River, close to the Route 41 Bridge. The bridge makes for a pretty view in the background just to sit down and enjoy the scenery. The weekend art festival makes for a nice, interesting stroll, and I particularly like the statue of Edison, Ford, and Firestone. Seems safe, I didn't have any... More

Who knew this lovely walking path with bay views was so close to downtown? Great place to relax and enjoy a sandwich. Only negative, no dogs allowed.

On any given day, the park will hold parents with children, homeless people, a Farmer's market, special events, and a few fisherman. It is a typical downtown park, there is limited parking, it is right next to the 41 bridge over the river. You can also access by walking along the river, the rest of the Fort Myers waterfront parks... More
