Centennial Park Points of Entry
Welcome to Centennial Park on the Santa Ana River bicycle trail.
7.3 miles from Huntington Beach, right next to the Edinger exit, when going north on the Santa Ana River Trail is Centinnial Park. It is 21.5 miles from the end of the Orange County Section of the Santa River Trail at Green River Road, if going there and you started at mile marker 0, you're a quarter of the way through, as you still have about 2 more hours of riding to do.
A rather large city park at 70.5 acres, Centennial Regional Park, is located at 3000 West Edinger Avenue, in the City of Santa Ana. There's 466 parking places, a lake, soccer fields, 4 baseball fields, restrooms, room for football, skate park, picnic areas and basketball courts. This is a great spot to stop off, when you reach Edinger Avenue, with in a minute, you will have a nice place to take in some scenery with the lake there.
See the Edinger Avenue page,for more information on food and drink around the Edinger Avenue exit on the Santa Ana River Trail.
