Centennial Park dedicated

Centennial Park

Once just a triangle of dirt that University President James Appleton described as a “mess,” Centennial Park was dedicated March 2, 2011¬†as another point of pride for the University and an entry point to the Redlands campus.

At the northeast corner of University Street and Citrus Avenue, the block wall reads “Home of the University of Redlands.” It is landscaped with drought-tolerant plants, palms and trees.

The park was built for aesthetics, not activity. No trespassing signs are clearly displayed on both sides. It is the 14th park in the city of Redlands park inventory, and the effort was praised by alum and Redlands Mayor Pete Aguilar at the ceremony.
