This is great place to meet and walk and have some fun. There is mini-golf that is a blast.! On real grass - not your goofy mini-golf course.. Fun.!! Lawn bowling and several activities.

Peaceful views and fountains combined with an easy walking path. Generally very serene and peaceful. You will occasionally find children fishing and grandparents helping. I love to go here, sit on a bench and just relax.

This expansive and easy-to-navigate parkland is probably one of the very nicest and best maintained in the entire metro area. The lake is surrounded by a variety of walking trails with stunning views from every angle. There are an abundance of rest spots...everything from swinging benches to adirondack chairs to gazebos. It's a very spacious locale and you never feel... More

There are a few benches, maybe two swing benches on the riverside. Very nice place to go have lunch or lounge around and people watch. There are no barriers between the edge of the walkways and the river, so children must be watched at all times. There is a splash type fountain that kids can play in. It's not an... More

We took the family here to play golf in miniature, lawn bowling and to ride the paddleboats. There is no cost to go into the park but you do have to pay for the activities. Prices were reasonable and the staff was nice and friendly. The "lake" was pretty and clean and fun to navigate through on the paddleboats. One... More

They had a variety of places to eat and some fun, inexpensive activities for the family - mini golf, paddle boats, fishing, etc. The mini golf was $10 for 18 Holes.

After having a nice breakfast at People's Organic and doing some browsing and shopping at the Galleria, it felt good on the second day of our trip to cross the road and head over to Centennial Park. This park reminds me in spirit of the Greenway present in various satellite cities around Phoenix, AZ. It's a great feeling to escape... More

First...don't look for a playground. This urban park is great for walks along it's paved paths. Numerous benches for us seniors. A diverse number of dining choices on or very near the park. I walk here 12 months of the year. In winter the snow is cleared off the paths for walking and off the lakes for ice skating. Beautifully... More

I frequent Centennial Lakes weekly and enjoy so many aspects of what there is to offer. The plants and gardens are so pretty and fun to see throughout the year. I walk year round and this park is nice in the winter because the path is clean and lit at night. Fun boats, mini golf and bocce with a few... More
