California State Historic Landmark 363
#363 Aguaje de la Centinela
On this site bubbling springs once flowed from their source in a deep water basin
which has existed continuously since the Pleistocene Era. Prehistoric animals, indians, and early
Inglewood settlers were attracted here by the pure artesian water. The springs and valley were
named after sentinels guarding cattle in the area.
Centinela Park, near swimming pool, corner of Stepney and Park, Inglewood.
