We have been going to Centennial Beach for over ten years. It has more wrong with it than right, but it is close to home. This year half the lake/pool was closed for the entire year. One of the few good things about Centennial Beach...More

Nice place for family outing, middle of downtown Naperville. Place to be for kids during summer. If swimming doesn't interest you you can enjoy the sun on the beach.

Great value for Naperville residents. There is a sandy beach area with zero depth entry. The deep end has several diving boards. The lifeguards all seem well trained and engaged with the serious nature of their job. There is a snack bar and plenty of...More

We have never been to a more unique beach/pool with part old quarry deep end and part sand.! Grassy and shady areas with picnic tables, adirondack chairs, and umbrellas surround the pool. Swim lanes at least Olympic length allow for serious lap swimming as does...More

Naperville is blessed to have this gem of a place we call Centennial Beach. Once a limestone quarry now a family fun place to hang out. We buy the annual family passes each year as it's the place to hang out again and again.

Great place to cool off with your kids on a hot summer day. Water, sand, slides, shade and ice cream... Beautiful setting right off Naperville Riverwalk.

If by SUP you mean paddle board then I would say no. I don't think even rafts are allowed as there was no one that had anything like that there.
