Huge park, very well maintained. Great paved walking path @ 2.5 miles around the lake. All size pavilions, some nice bathrooms, but mostly portable toilets. Beach volleyball, and assorted ball fields in the main park. Much more, like basketball & tennis and lighted multipurpose fields in the smaller subsections, accessed from different roads. Amphitheater in main park, used in the summer months for free concerts. Park is very well maintained and park employees are on site in case of emergencies. Pretty much completely accessible, with the exception of the portable toilets, which while there are some designed for the disabled, I cannot get my scooter into them. But the paths are wonderful and well used by people from far & wide. Loads of wildlife, especially waterfowl. Also nice for Pokémon Go, with 3 gyms on the main path around the lake and others scattered around the extra areas. Lake is stocked, and there are rental canoes, as well as a boat ramp for small personal craft. I dont think gasoline engines are allowed & I dont know if it is strictly catch & return or not.
The main problem with Centennial Lake is the profusion of the exotic submerged aquatic plant, hydrilla. Hydrilla, also commonly called water thyme, is a perennial plant that forms dense colonies and can grow to the surface in water over 20 feet deep. Centennial Lake gölünün asıl sorunu, egzotik bir su bitkisi olan hidrillanın bolluğudur. Genellikle su kekiği de denilen hidrilla, yoğun koloniler oluşturan ve 20 fit derinlikten suda yüzeye çıkabilen çok yıllık bir bitkidir.
We were here for a birthday party for my wife and a friend. We had rented a pavilion at a very reasonable price that overlooks the lake so the scenery is amazing. The pavilions are semi enclosed so that is a nice plus. We did however run into a few issues. There are 3 pavilions in the cluster we were in and each holds 40 people per our agreement. However there are only about 30-40 parking spaces. Doing the math on that apparently they expect only large vans loads to park there. We were able to work it out but it wasnt ideal. Additionally when we arrived we found a family of squatters in our pavilion. After some discussion they departed but they took their time. There was also an unfortunate carpenter bees nest within the wood of our pavilion. But it is nature so you deal with that. Overall a great space and we had a good time. I would probably do another event there.
A very fine park, bustling with activity, especially on weekends. Loads of people come out in nice weather to enjoy this space, so if youre looking for solitude, look elsewhere. A good place for running, walking and biking. Large playground for the little ones. All sorts of boating on the lake, so long as its self-propelled. Lawns and paths are well-maintained, and crews were even diligently emptying refuse containers. Multiple entrances with separate parking areas so you can visit a different section of the park each time.
First time visiting this place and I would have to say that its a beautiful park. Its a great place to take the family out for picnic and other activities. Also a great place to walk your dogs and a good route to jog/run. I find this slightly challenging when it comes to running as there are a few hills throughout the course. There are plenty of parking, picnic areas, and benches. Restroom is also available. Oh and not to mention its a great place to catch some Pokemons! lol
I have not explored the park too much as we were there for a work pot luck lunch and work had reserved the pavilion. The park does seem nice, the pavilion is well taken care of. The play ground looked like it would be great for little kids (maybe I should bring mine to test it out). From what I could tell there were about 5 rentable pavilions, a large play ground for kids, sand volleyball court, basketball courts, and a lake.
Weve walked around this park several times, and enjoyed it every time. Trails are paved and well managed and clean, suitable for any type of fitness level There are places to take your kids with strollers or bikes, if you have them. There are quiet places, lively places, shaded areas with benches, and open sunny spots right next to the water, if you want a breeze. One of the best parks in the BW corridor.
Another fantastic park in Columbia! Were so lucky to have many great parks in the area, but this one may be my favorite. The walk around Centennial Lake is a pleasant one, with most of the length covered by shady trees (save that stretch on the southeast side, which can be a bit toasty on a hot day). Theres also a nice arboretum to the north side with plaques informing you about the different trees.
Beautiful, large park with a lake and many areas for picnics. The path around the lake is long... maybe 2+ miles, but its often shaded and all paved. Theres a boat house and concession stand. You can rent paddle boats in season and buy sodas, ice cream, and hot dogs, etc. The park can get very crowded on weekends, and parking can be a challenge. Otherwise... great place to walk and picnic, etc.

Trails are not marked or labeled. Not a good place for someone who does not know the park. Thought it would be great for marathon training, however, I got lost for an hour trying to find the parking lot where my car was to get my water. Finally had to leave the park at Rt 108 and Centennial lane to walk to the west gate enterance. It was the only way I knew 100% how to get back to the lot.
This park has something for everyone. A boat rental to rent out a small fishing boat, rowboat, canoe, paddleboat, kayak, etc. There is a snack bar that even sells bait for fishing. A lot of picnic and BBQ areas. Playgrounds, beach volleyball courts, tennis courts, etc. The only thing that could use improvements are the parks facilities and the quality of the lake water.
Love it, love it, love it! I have been to many parks and this park is very unique. The staff they we met were helpful, friendly and attentive. I love the layout and of the pavillions! They allowed for air to flow freely. The only thing I wish they had was a swimming pool. But to remedy not having a pool, we bought water guns.
Centennial is a fantastic park containing basketball courts, tennis courts, volleyball nets, soccer fields (grass and not great), numerous pavilions for events, paddle boats, a boat ramp for getting into the lake (I would assume motor boats are allowed), playgrounds, plenty of open space, and a nice trail around the lake.
Just found this place yesterday and I was surprised. The lake is surrounded by a 2 mile bike/running/walking trail. The path is paved and plenty wide for people biking and walkers at the same time. This place looks beautiful at sunset. Its a great place to bring your family or to take some photos.
Pleasant park with 2 playgrounds, tennis courts, pick up basketball, a volleyball court, a dock with rentable paddleboats & canoes, a small snacks shop by the dock, a boating ramp, bathrooms, and plenty of old timers fishing during the day. Great for runners, walkers, bikers, and families
