Idaho Vacation: Twin Falls Centennial Waterfront Park

Twin Falls is a city with many very nice parks.  Centennial Park,just north of the city, ranks as one of the nicest in the area.  This makes a great place to take a quick Idaho vacation or just spend a few quiet hours enjoying the beauty of the Snake River canyon.

Centennial Waterfront Park is actually a Twin Falls County Park located less than a mile from the south end of Perrine Bridge which spans the Snake River Canyon.  Canyon Springs Road heads west along the canyon wall towards the park and Canyon Springs Golf Course.

The park was developed in 1990 and boasts lots of grass, picnic areas, playground, hiking trails, waterfront activities, rock climbing and much more.  The scenery is fantastic with great views of Perrine Bridge, the Snake River, and waterfalls tumbling down the canyon walls.  When we visited in January, beautiful ice formations were bountiful along the canyon road.

Just down the road a bit from the park entrance is Canyon Springs Golf Course, an 18-hole public course.

This area is close to the better known Shoshone Falls (blog post here).  While in the area, stop at the Perrine Bridge Visitors Center to get fantastic views of the Snake River Canyon and the famous Perrine Bridge (over 1500 feet long and about 500 feet above the Snake River).  This area is just four miles south of I-84 and very much worth the short detour.  The Magic Valley Mall is just across US-93 from the turnoff to the park.

Take a break and enjoy this part of your Idaho Vacation.
