The former scrubland and tip has been transformed into a place for nature and recreational area replete with trees, wild flowers, picnic tables, a pond and a looped walking track.
A variety of broad leaf trees, a small orchard of fruit trees, a memorial woodland and individual commemorative trees have been planted. The memorial woodland has been a co-creation with the Royal British Legion and the Royal Air Force. One tree for each and every Manxman who lost his life in the First World War has been planted there, 1267 in total.
Centenary Park has been leased by Onchan District Commissioners to the Isle of Man Woodland Trust.
Centenary Park is on Birch Hill, Onchan.
At the end of the cul-de-sac of Highfield Close is a small path that connects to the park. Cars should be parked away from the small road leading into the cul-de-sac as it is very narrow and cars leaving the surrounding houses might have a hard time to get out of their driveway.
A bus stop is very close at Highfield Crescent.
