The Park also hosts a variety of cultural performances in a 1,000-seat lakeside amphitheater. Visitors can rent the Hughes Pavilion for banquet space for weddings, business meetings and social events.
The Park is also home to the Edina Model Yacht Club, an energetic group of radio-controlled model boating enthusiasts that ply the Park's waterways with scale replicas of a wide variety of vessels.
In the winter months, Centennial Lakes Park offers one of the Twin Cities' finest outdoor skating venues. Visitors can skate across 10 acres of carefully maintained ice or take a spin on one of the Park's Norwegian ice sleds. Afterwards, guests can relax by one of the Hughes Pavilion's three fireplaces while sipping a cup of hot chocolate from the concession stand. For the convenience of Park visitors, Centennial Lakes rents figure and hockey skates for children and adults.
