Sunrise to 11 p.m. (no lighting at beach)
Beachgoers in the know have discovered Centennial Beach in the City’s West Wetlands Park, adjacent to the boat ramp. Only two years old, it may lack ocean waves, but features tons of sand for picnics and castles and a cool river in which to dip your toes.
The 30 acres of the “lower bench” adjacent to the beach and boat ramp are restored with native trees and grasses, and 30 acres of the “upper bench” are developed with a lake, restrooms, picnic ramadas, parking, lighting, and landscaping.
