Plaque text:

Aguaje de la Centinela
(Centinela Springs)

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.

Plaque placed by the State Department of Parks and Recreation in cooperation with the Historical Society of Centinela Valley, October 9, 1970.
