Englewood's Centennial Park lures with fishing, sunsets

Posted

With summer and the day nearing their end, Centennial Park in Englewood hummed with activity.

A teenager shot hoops, men warmed up their arms near the baseball diamond and cyclists curled over their handlebars at the recreational space off of Union and Decatur. The cement path around the lake bustled with dogs and their humans out for a little exercise.

And as the hazy summer day meandered toward a cloudy night Sept. 1, the fishing poles came out.

Jayce Aiken, 16, and his sister Jayla Aiken of Littleton snagged a few bluegills. They’ve just picked up fishing, their mother said.

Jaedyn Wright, 4, and his parents caught some sunfish. Eva Nevarrez and Zach Wright, who grew up in the area, bring Jaedyn to the park on a regular basis.

“They always bite over here,” Wright said from a spot near the foot bridge. He’s a fan of the fishing.

However, with twilight settling over the park, Nevarrez recommended the sunsets.
