The beach is an old rock quarry that has been converted into a pool. It is only open from Memorial day to Labor day. It is a great place to swim, picnic or to just hangout. Families are there by the droves!

One trashiest places in naperville. filled with skuzbags and theifs. You cant walk far into centenial beach without seeing heroine scattered across the beach. Needles and blood taint the land infested with drugies. Its all romneys fault.

A beach in the middle of town. Who would have thought.. The beach is active, clean and includes sand. Years ago it was a distressed quarry and some residents stepped up to make it a beach. Best decision ever. It is located along the river walk with many mature trees.

This is a great outdoor pool located in Downtown Naperville. It is larger than a usual pool and features a diving board area, deep end, lap lanes, and shallow area with slide. These is also a sand area and playground, food, and grassy area for tanning.
Depending on the day, it may be a challenge to get a beach chair. Also, the water is dark and not as clear as in a tiled pool. It also may be a bit chilly.
Locker rooms are good, but crowded during times like upon closing for the day.
Parking is ample, but usually full. Some fairly close parking can be found in the surrounding residential area.
A season pass is a great value if you plan several repeat visits.
