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.

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

Centennial Park is a great place to to enjoy the view of the Caloosahatchee River. There are two piers to walk out on and many times fishermen are there also. It is fun to watch what they catch. There is a beautiful fountain with lifelike statues of Edison, Ford & Firestone. In the surrounding pool are also statues of native... More
