Somewhat nice park on a large island in the Susquehanna River. Has a very nice , modern minor league baseball stadium, which is worth a visit all by itself. A nice walking and nature trail on the northwest side of the island. Sometimes there are lots of geese and other waterfowl. Picturesque views of the river any time of day,... More

Ok it is seasonal for the most part but when in Harrisburg during warm months I wouldn't miss it. It is really the place to be during festivals that occur here several times a year. You can get something to eat while enjoying the scenic river views. You can catch a ball game when the Senators are in town....a double... More

There are so many things to do on this island, particularly go to a Senators baseball game. Love it there, and this past year there was this awesome Indian/Native American festival on the island which was the absolute coolest event I've ever attended there!

The mini railroad is great, if you ignore the run-down condition of the train station. The carousel is fun, if you ignore it's run-down condition. The pavilion is large and good for events, if you ignore it's run-down condition and the fact that many of the doors on the building are broken and no longer operable. The mini golf course... More

Visited City Island last week. Everything is falling apart and decaying. There is a minor league ballpark, miniature golf, a train ride and a riverboat ride on the river. All looked pretty good, but island itself is falling apart and not very clean. Lots of litter and facilities are either beat up or closed.

I've been here several times and love it each time! I took off a half day of work on a Tues and picked up my niece and came to City island (her 1st time). It happened to be an afternoon when temps hit 90° so unfortunately the batting cages were closed until 5 pm because of the heat. So I... More
