There is fun for all ages here. If you love to fish, you can rent a Kayak or Canoe and fish in the beautiful lake. The path around the lake itself is a full circle that will take roughly 45 minutes walking. I would recommend...More

I live in Columbia, and it took me way too long to discover this lake! Typical of Columbia's planned aesthetic, there are little wooden structures around the lake that you can reserve to have parties or barbecues. I eloped in one back in March! In...More

Centennial Lake is a family favorite for walking the dogs. We go almost every Sunday morning for a nice walk around the lake (3 Miles). Sunrise and Sunset are the best times for taking pictures.

Crowded, and overused but time your trip and its still a good experience. Fishing, easy paved trails. Don't expect to bike ride 15mph+ unless you want to be very rude. Canoe launch, excellent fishing. Shelters, picnic areas. Parking does fill up quickly.

As long as you are comfortable, you will be fine. Depending on the weather you will know whether to bring a jacket or not.
