Program Open Space This park was funded in part by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources Program Open Space Grants. 

Centennial Park has won awards for its natural design and sensitivity to nature. The 337-acre park features a spectacular 54-acre, man-made lake, which is stocked by the State Department of Fisheries, and is home to a variety of wildlife such as white-tailed deer, beavers, foxes, turtles, herons, and many other bird species.

You can walk, run or bike the 2.6-mile paved pathway that meanders around the lake or the 7.3 miles of interconnecting paved pathway that includes links to surrounding neighborhoods. Cast for bass, trout, sunfish and tiger muskies. The park has four main areas: North, South, East, and West, each with a separate entrance. Included are 9 picnic pavilions available on a first-come-first-served basis, unless reserved, and 3 first-come-first-served picnic areas (propane grills are not permitted). From late spring through early fall, boats are available for rent at the General Store/Boat Rental Office located in the park's South area. The park is open from 7am to dusk or as posted. Park regulations prohibit hunting, firearms, swimming, sail boarding, wind surfing, and inner tubing. Alcoholic beverages are allowed only in the pavilions by permit. Leashed pets are allowed in the park but not in picnic, playground, or sports areas. Howard County law requires owners to clean up after their pets.

Things to Remember 

Help to keep your parks beautiful -- please take your trash and recyclable items home. Take only pictures and leave only footprints.

Dog droppings may attract disease-harboring pests, and even a friendly dog can scare the birds, wildlife and park visitors. Clean up after your dog and keep it leashed; it's the law.

All of our parks are inhabited by a wide variety of wildlife such as deer, snakes, fish, rabbits, insects and birds. Please do not disturb them; remember, this is their home.
