Centennial Park was developed in 1983 with park development funds. The park was originally named Campus Avenue Ontario Centennial Park which was dedicated in 1982, the centennial year for the City, but was officially opened in 1983. The park received its name after the City Council received name entries, as part of a naming contest. The extra-long name was given so that the parks location would be easy to find, now the park is just known as Centennial Park.
The park has a dog-friendly multi-use path, picnic areas, a tot lot, a playground and exercise equipment. Restrooms are also available.
