Centennial Park

400 Montclair Street

Tucked away just North of Stockdale Highway on Montclair is Centennial Park. This park offers relief from the hustle and bustle of city life, without leaving the city. Individual picnic areas, or covered seating areas, can keep you comfortable while your children play away on the wonderful toys located in the sandlot style play area.

Planning a family gathering or company picnic? Centennial Park offers picnic areas, with a serving shelter, for rent for a nominal fee. The reservation will guarantee your spot on the day of your choice, and the serving shelter offers you a place to serve food without worrying about the elements.

Come and enjoy a rousing game of basketball, tennis or volleyball on lighted courts. Or if baseball or soccer is more to your liking, there is a baseball backstop or a soccer field for your use on a first-come-first-served basis.

If you enjoy playing with your dog, this park also offers a no-leash area enjoyed by many dogs and their owners. This area is surrounded by fencing, and is large enough to tire out the most energetic of dogs!

Make Centennial Park one of your stops next time you need a break, we are sure you will not regret your choice.

Always peaceful and quiet. Beautiful neighborhood minus all the construction and destruction preparing for the new freeway coming through. Thank goodness it will not hinder the park. Enjoy

Great park for playing and BBQ'ing! Restrooms we're awfully dirty and no doors on the womens stalls. Parks and Recreation is not taking care of the amenities in this park. Bring your own toilet paper they do not provide it. I would have given it 5 stars but the place was dirty.

It is a nice and clean park, but most of the people who go there are vagabonds and the likewise.

Homeless people and drug addicts frequent this park regularly so stay safe and never go to this park. This was my experience: I finally decided to try take my dogs to the leash free zone of Centennial park on Stockdale & Monclaire street. As soon as I got to the gate two elderly Animal Control Officers (one bald man and one woman) rapidly drove right up to the entrance and started asking me questions about my dogs and whether or not they are licensed. I was about to eat a hot lunch with someone else and wanted to eat in peace. After I provided proof my dogs are legal they continued talking to my friend and I knew the food was getting cold so I interrupted them and told them to move on. The man got extremely upset and walked over to the bench where I was sitting and got about 2 feet from where I was sitting and started aggressively staring down in my face and accusing me of being all sorts of names such as mentally ill, with "serious problems" etc. I felt extremely uncomfortable by this strange old man berating me at the park while my food was getting colder and colder and I stood up and asked him why he is harassing me and to just leave me alone because I proved I have the right to take my dogs to the park. He then got even more aggressive and hostile and threatened to call the cops and take me to JAIL! I told him he was the hostile one and I should be the one calling the police and the woman officer (whom appeared to be his partner/spouse) started grabbing him and trying to coerce him away from me and back in the car (which was an unmarked car and likely illegal BTW). He reluctantly obeyed her partners demands and left. While I was at the park I saw three dangerous looking homeless people (one of them was wondering around near the entrance of the dog park gate talking to himself) and 3 people doing drugs 30 yards from the entrance of the dog park gate. I felt disrespected, harassed, berated and unsafe and it was a HORRIBLE experience, especially when the authorities are focused on me and my legally licensed dogs while ignoring the real problems that were going on at the park right in front of them. Stay safe, be smart and AVOID THIS PARK.
