Centennial Park is the main community park entertaining locals and visitors located in the downtown core of the community of Fort St. John, British Columbia, Canada. The park is a delight for all ages and all fitness levels as it is a destination park with picnic tables and viewing benches not a network of hard core wilderness trails.

The public grounds are well maintained with each grass field explored by a paved walking path uncovering various sections of the park including dedicated plaques, honorary monuments and various flower garden displays. The walkway is nothing long or extreme but a short casual stroll exploring around the park providing a quick glance at all the activity.

Some of the monuments onsite pay tribute to war veterans, the founders of the park and to one of British Columbia's greatest explorers - Alexander Mackenzie. There is a metal bear sculpture worth viewing onsite also provided by a local artisan of North BC.

Beside the picnic tables and viewing benches in the park there is also a water park and playground in the back of the park that is ideal for families with young children. The playground is next door to the a sand volleyball court and a wicked little skateboard park.

The parking lot is huge as it services many recreational buildings in the area. The same parking lot of the park is connected to a curling arena and skating rink. Across the lawns of Centennial Park and opposite the parking lot is a museum with historical artifacts and the towns history recorded for all to view.
