Centennial Park, Fort Myers

Centennial Park is a 10-acre green space on the banks of the Caloosahatchee River. Visitors will find a playground, sand volleyball courts, boat docks and fishing pier. There is plenty of space for picnicking, including covered pavilions for rainy days.

The park has been rated as one of the top 10 attractions in Ft. Myers. This is largely due to the expanse of the green space and winding sidewalks that are perfect for a leisurely stroll.

The park includes a fountain that features Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone. It is a popular space for outdoor events and concerts. A farmer's market is hosted at Centennial Park every Thursday.

Those tourists wanting to take to the water can rent a boat with appropriate ID. Fishing rods and bait are also available for purchase at the park.

Centennial Park is easily accessible by foot thanks to ample sidewalks that connect the park with downtown Ft. Myers and the River District.
