Upcoming Park Projects

Centennial Park Renovation 

Anticipated completion - summer 2021

Centennial Park is an 11-acre park located in historic downtown Fort Myers on the scenic banks of the Caloosahatchee River, hosting special events and attracting in excess of 250,000 citizens annually. Refurbishment of the park and restrooms, including replacement of the nearly 30-year-old equipment will expand the play area and comply with ADA requirements to provide activities for children with unique abilities. The project involves improvements to landscaping, pathways (ensuring ADA-compliant access to equipment), pavilions and outdoor programmable spaces.
