City Island is a cool place, but the Senators games are our favorite. Minor league baseball has a very intimate, small town feel, and we had seats right behind home plate ($11). You feel right in the middle of the game and what a friendly crowd. You can reach city island either by car or, more interesting, walking across a... More

Recently went to a Senators game...lots of fun for the price. $10.00 for a ticket. Food prices a little less than a major league park and was par with them. Parking is a bargain at $3.00...but plan on arriving early for less traffic and a good place. Saw the usual between inning entertainment except...that night was Cowboy Monkeys...fun but weird!!!

Our waitress tipped us off to this place. We went and drove around (it's a little hard to get to - especially when a soccer game is going on, which it was). There is a cute train for kids to ride on and playground. We did the mini golf which was great and picturesque as it is right on the... More

The park has really been cleaned up over the years. We found that parking was easy and there were a variety of things to do.

You can catch a soccer game or minor league baseball game on the island, but there are also plenty of things to do when the teams are away. The Pride of the Susquehanna is a nice paddle wheel boat ride; there is a mini train, mini golf, batting cages, an arcade, and outfitters for river water activities. There is a... More

Great baseball stadium without a bad seat in the house. Soccer field that could use a few upgrades but gives off a warm and friendly feel. And the view is spectacular.

Came down for a Senators game and walked around. Easy parking. Nice environs around the stadium. Seemed like if I lived here, I would take my kids to play in the arcade or playgrounds.

Lots of activities for people of all ages. The new ballpark is beautiful and fun. There is mini golf, batting cages, an ice cream shop, a train ride, Pride of the Susquehanna river boat ride, picnic area, canoe and kayak rentals and a playground / park for the kids... There is definitely something for everyone.

Multiple adventures await you as you cross the Market Street bridge to this jewel on the Susquehanna. Of course, you may visit Metro Bank Park, the home of the minor league baseball Harrisburg Senators where you might watch the future MLB superstars in their early days. Believe me, some of the best players of the past 25 years have gone... More
