I love Centennial Park

Yes, there may be bums from time to time but it's a cute little park and I love that it's right by the water. Very peaceful.

This park is downtown, nice and some what clean. Just too many homeless folks wondering around the place. VERY sad for them. Most leave you alone, sometimes you are approached for money or cigarettes. There is NO walking patrols in the area at all in the mornings or afternoons. During events you do see the presence of the police department.... More

Be sure to tour the River District and take in the outdoor art scupltures at Centernnial Park. There are benches and a pier to walk out on. Every Thursday morning from 7 AM-1 PM there is a farmer's market with great vendors.

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.

all in all a nice little park, two piers, a sculpture fountain, two tidal basins, and the public boat ramp. it's too bad they don't allow pets in the grassy area of the park, but that is par for the course in most of South West Florida, very anti pet oriented.

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.
