This is such a fun place to catch rays. It combines the sand of a beach with the convenience of a pool. The refreshments are good or you can pack up a picnic to enjoy, or a combination.

Have never been when crowded but it is a great place for triathletes to practice open water (sort of) swims.

Every Sunday my husband and I from 9-11 am join others in the adult float. It is great to be able to float around the pool without any kids screaming and yelling. It is very relaxing and peaceful way to spend a Sunday morning.

As Naperville residents, we really enjoy coming here. Besides being a terrific place to enjoy the summer, it is a step back into time and nostalgic. A former quarry, Centenial Beach is now run by the Park District. The former quarry now has a sand...More

Centennial Beach is a great old quarry that has been turned into a pool/beach. It's technically a pool, but has a sand area where kids enjoy playing, and the water starts at zero depth. They have several sprinklers for the younger children and a slide...More
