“Beautiful Waterfront Park”
Review of Centennial Park

Centennial Park
Ranked #12 of 27 things to do in Sarnia
Attraction details
Reviewed August 23, 2018

I recently rode my bike along the pathways of Centenial Park and enjoyed the new trails and sights along the way. August is a great season to see this park as the flower gardens are truly magnificent with a variety of annual and perennial plants and shrubs. The trail along the water takes you to a number of interesting places: a wetlands/pond area with a secluded deck with a view down the river, a large cement water pond shaped like the Great Lakes, a lovely patio restaurant at the marina that is open to the public, a memorial gardens, sculptures, fountains, monuments, and did I mention the steam locomotive? This park is also where you board the "Duc d'Orleans" boat for either a lunch cruise (Monday to Saturday) or afternoon cruise of the river (Sunday only) that is quite lovely. As you keep walking along the pathways, you can connect to the interesting shops and restaurants of Sarnia downtown just up the hill, or across from the Marina at the other end. The park also boasts a new entertainment stage where events are scheduled throughout the summer. Clean and well kept, this park is a gem.

Trails now all Connect. NIce features and dedications. Glad they got it cleaned up.
The Festival of Lights is a great attraction. Hope you don't miss it.
This is a great walking, jogging, biking area. It has a lot to offer when you dig around it and take the time The Agora is a great idea and positioned at the bay so you can pull your boat up and listen to the music when they have an event. Music is meant to be shared.

My wife and I frequently stroll this park. Wonderful scenery along the river and bay. New revamped park is more open and less hilly.
