About Centennial Park

We have rented Pavillion D for this event. From US 29 in Columbia, take Rt. 108 west about 1 mile. Turn right into the South Area entrance to Centennial Park and continue straight to the parking area for Pavillions A, B, C, & D (see map below).

Centennial Park Map

This park has won three awards for its natural design and sensitivity to nature. You can walk, run or bike the 2.6-mile paved pathway that meanders around the lake. Visitors are welcome to rent a boat, cast for fish, enjoy the colorful natural wildflower areas, watch for a diversity of birds, waterfowl, and wildlife, play a sport, or in our case have a great picnic. Directions and additional info is on the county web site.
