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

This park is alongside the Caloosahatchee river which in itself is a beautiful river. There are benches to sit and enjoy the view. This area is also the home for the Taste of Fort Myers, Fort Myers art fest and other festivals. There used to be an art gallery with art work done by former olympians but that recently closed...

We visited Centennial Park on a Friday afternoon while artists were setting up for the weekend art festival , so we didn't get to see as much of it as we would have liked. It's a wonderful setting along the river and offers beautiful views of the water and the bridges. We walked as much as we could of the... More

There is a beautiful fountain with lifelike statues of Edison, Ford & Firestone. In the surrounding pool are also statues of native... More

I love bringing visitors here to stroll around the river and enjoy a sunset. There are paths, volleyball courts, play areas for little ones, interesting statues and information markers. The bathrooms are well-maintained and there are several strategic drinking fountains. The yacht basin is there and you'll see lots of folks just enjoying the city. I usually see police out... More

If you enjoy a relaxing walk around a lovely park with scenic views this is for you. A sidewalk snakes throughout the park which is perfect for jogging, cycling or a leisurely stroll. Centennial Park is located on the Caloosahatchie River in downtown Fort Myers, which offers stunning views of the bridges, marinas and wildlife. There is plenty of inexpensive... More

Located on the Calusahathee River in downtown Ft Myers it is a quiet placewith a fountain and statues of the Friends, a playground and pavilion. It is mostly used for concerts and special.events, but is a nice stroll.
