Celebrating 100 years of history.
Centennial Plaza was designed as part of the City of Peoria’s celebration of the State Centennial through a two-stage design competition for the remaining parcel within the City Hall complex. The plaza features a Decades Walk that celebrates national, state and city milestones, event plaza, lawn, and a covered amphitheater. International, national, state and city of Peoria historical events and milestones are displayed on tiles which are embedded in the walkway that encircles the plaza.
This plaza park was built to celebrate Arizona’s Centennial year.
Each brick contains a timeline history of Arizona’s 100 years as a state and recognizes major US and world events.
Decades are represented by the arches along the “Decades Walk” which highlights Arizona’s history.
