Centennial Park in downtown Fort Myers has a beautiful view of the river. It has a sidewalk parallel to the river, a beautiful fountain of Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone. There is a playground for children and several covered areas. Today, I visited a community farmers market that Centennial Park has every Thursday from 8am-1pm. It was very... More

Walking through the park is always a great time however the homeless population is evident. We were approached twice and were asked for money. I didn't mind however as this is a part of life. The trees and the park are well maintained. The clocks and palm trees along the street are a very nice touch.

I went to this location for a history walk. While waiting for the other guest I sat on one of the benches and I was admiring the statues. To my surprise I saw about 3 spiders in the space of less than 15 mintues. I know its florida and they have spiders but just be careful. Other than that I... More

Nice fountains and water front side walk. The view of the river and bridges at night time was very nice.

Gorgeous view of the water and nice green grass. I've actually done a photo-shoot and a wedding here, beautiful shots! There's an area to park your car, and it warns you can only stay for three hours; I've never been towed. Pet friendly too! Although there are no poop stations, so don't forget to bring doggy bags. Lots of kids... More

I love centennial Park. They have big open fields to play sports in. Pavilions with outlets installed which are great for parties. The pier has always been very relaxing for me and a trip to the Edison Inventor fountain was a consistent must when I was a child.

A pleasant walk along the waterfront. Often the place where concerts, festivals and other special events are held. There's a fishing pier and picnic pavilions, swings for the kids and benches for relaxing in the shade. Great spot for a wedding, prom or anniversary photo too.

This is a nice park during the city events that they hold during the year. At night I would be careful walking around the area, especially if you were just visiting Ft Myers.
