The park is located in the downtown area and was a nice day. The cost was $5 per person and food varied, you needed to buy coupons but not... More

Great for romantic evening walks along the water! Pathways take you along the Caloosahatchee River where you can enjoy stunning sunsets and evening breezes. This park has loads of features including: art sculptures, fountains, benches, shelters with picnic tables, sand volleyball court, children’s playground, bathrooms and open grassy areas for playing Frisbee or having a picnic. Last Sunday we enjoyed... 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.

It has been around for years and you can tell. You will find diversity here. You will the some of the best of people and some of the least fortunate. If you do not mind, play away. Lay a blanket down and have a picnic. From a playground, valley ball courts, attractive water fountain, monumental status where you could take... More

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.
