  • 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's not the biggest park I've been to. It has public bathrooms and a little park area. If you like Pok√©mongo. This is the park for u. A lot of pokestops and 1 gym.
  • This park goes right up to the river and is in the heart of downtown Fort Myers. I took a walk along the river and out to the end of the pier for a really nice view of the night sky, and city lights, all reflected on the water. Bars and restaurants are within a short walking distance. My recommendation is Ford's Garage after you've expended some energy at the park.
  • I love this park because there is so many pikemon. lol
  • fun BIG park with lots to do and room to do whatever. We went for the fireworks on the 4th. up close and it was cool.
  • Centennial Park is right on the Caloosahatchee River, has great views and green areas for recreation, a playground for kids, a nice covered picnic area for gatherings and groups, and easy access and parking from downtown. There is a short pier to walk out on to enjoy fishing or viewing the river and boats going by, a historical fountain with statues of famous people who called Fort Myers home, like Thomas Edison, a Memorial to the Union Soldiers who defended Fort Myers in the Civil War, and to the airmen who trained in the Fort Myers area during WW11. There is a volleyball court, benches to sit on to enjoy the views, sidewalks to stroll along the grassy areas by the water, and it's an enjoyable place to spend a few hours or just stop in to take a break. There is also a good boat launch, places to park boat trailers, and you may see some local wildlife like ducks or other waterbirds. There is good access to see local Mangroves which grow along along the riverbanks. All in all, it's a great park and a great part of Fort Myers. You will need a boat for water access, as there is no beach and no swimming area.
