First, swings!!! They have several swings, for different ages and abilities. Play structures for toddler and big kids. For parents park benches with nice shade... More

They are shown here lounging and chatting away in a very relaxed... More

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