Centennial splashes into national ranking

Centennial Center Park splash pad ranked as one of the best in country

Centennial Center Park, at 13050 E. Peakview Ave., was recently ranked among the top 10 for splash pads in the United States by USA Today.

Centennial’s splash pad hit the No. 5 spot on the list, which was published in late May.

Some of the features of the free park include a shallow stream, fountains and tipping buckets.

“It is fun for the little ones and they love it,” said Rhonda Stone, who drove her 3- and 5-year-old to the splash pad from their home in Parker. “We love it. It is such a great place to relax and come to lunch. And, it’s free.”

Centennial Center Park is an 11-acre park located alongside the Centennial Municipal Building. The park’s design was made to convey a passage of time through its arches and spirals. In addition to the splash pad, the park includes an amphitheater, a large playground and shelters.

The top 10 splash pads, according to USA Today:

1. Seattle Center International Fountain, Seattle

2. The Yards Park, Washington, D.C.

3. Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway Fountains, Boston

4. The Dinosaur Place Splashpad, Montville, Connecticut

5. Centennial Center Park, Centennial

6. Historic Fourth Ward Park Splashpad, Atlanta

7. Mt. Elliott Park, Detroit

8. Piratesville Splash Pad, Hartsville, South Carolina

9. Discovery Green, Houston

10. Brooklyn Bridge Park Water Lab at Pier 6, Brooklyn, New York
