Centennial, Colorado, is a relatively new suburb of Denver, having only been incorporated in 2001. Centennial reflects Colorado’s nickname, “The Centennial State,” which celebrates the fact Colorado was admitted to the Union as the 38th state in 1876, America’s centennial year. Governed by a home rule charter, Centennial covers approximately 27 miles and is roughly divided in half by I-25. Recreation is important to the residents of Centennial, which boasts plenty of open spaces with recreational trails and parks.




Full of fun activities to do and with easy access to the city of Denver and the mountains, Centennial is a popular place to move. Still, Centennial itself boasts great attractions and things to do. Here is our top list of attractions in Centennial:

  • Centennial City Park is a great place to spend the day with the kids or the dogs. Boasting a splash pad in the summer, kids can come and spend the day cooling down and playing in the sun. A climbing wall, a huge slide built into a hill, and tons of other playground activities await for kids to exert their pent-up energy. Lots of shade for picnics and open grass areas for frisbee with your dog, Centennial City Park is located off Arapahoe Road.
  • If you play golf, then visit TopGolf in Centennial. TopGolf is an indoor/outdoor venue, which is far from your typical golf course. Practice your game while you eat, drink, listen to live music, and visit the arcade room. Full of fun, TopGolf has something for the whole family.
  • Canvas and Cocktails is a local painting place that offers classes with instructors who guide you through a particular canvas. A menu is available for food and drinks as well, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Check out their special class selection, such as family day, kids’ paint day, or holiday-specific classes, such as holiday ornament painting.  Canvas and Cocktails located on University Boulevard is the perfect place to spend an evening letting your creative side shine through.
