The Centralia carillon is a beautiful structure and add the unmatched musical delight you have made a wonderful choice of destinations to visit. You will not be disappointed plus an extra benefit is the colorful waterfall shooting fountains nearby.

Small sitting park with a splash pad. Not a large splash pad can get crowded. Music plays during certain times of day. The kids really enjoy it!!
