Centennial Park is well worth the visit. Beautiful grounds, immaculately kept. Great place to walk, relax, and take in all that is Ft. Myers.

Centennial Park on the Caloosahatchee River is a great place to walk, look at current public art, let children play on swings, have a picnic, enjoy an outdoor concert

If you like to be on the water, this is a place to relax or just take a walk along the river. Nicely kept, open and clean so taking the grand kids is not an issue especially with the play ground. The Thursday Farmers Market with a few food trucks is a treat.

From this park you can see two or three bridges crossing the river. There seems to be some boat tours that start from this park. We did not take any. We walked around under wonderful weather. The park is well kept. It is ample and nice. Recommended.

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
