I'm not sure why they call this a park? unless they mean it's a place to PARK your car. People will use the word "Centennial Park" as a landmark and it took me a while to actually figure that out. LOL

My 2.5 year old loved the water splash pad. It's simple, but he really enjoyed it. There is shade, tables, and benches. We also enjoyed checking out the farmer's market on Saturday. It's also stroller friendly.

This splash park is great for any age. My kids love it. Adults can get wet or sit under the shadow of some beautiful trees while the little ones have fun. There is free parking and restrooms.

Best feature is the water splash area for kids, handy for the main street with good car parking but that fills up in the peak winter season. Toilet facilities are a bit dated but serviceable Weekend farmers market in the adjacent street.

It is always open. And just an FYI there is a playground by the tennis courts and if you walk one more block north from the tennis courts, there is a bigger and nicer playground for the kiddies.
