Probably the most notable feature of the Centennial Square Park in downtown is its lively fountain. A series of jets spring up from the pavement for everyone to cool off on hot days. And those happen a LOT!

Historic St. Ann Church was dedicated March 15, 1896, on the southeast corner of Rosemary and Datura Streets. In 1902, it was moved to its current location which was donated by Henry M. Flagler and served the Catholic Community until 1913. When the new church was dedicated, the old church was then used as the forerunner of St. Ann School which was built in 1925. St. Ann Church is the oldest Catholic Church and parish in the Diocese of Palm Beach.
St. Ann’s Church was developed by the Fathers of the Society of Jesus.
