We were able to find this somewhat easy but then once there we couldn’t find the right signage for the boat cruise and almost missed the boat. We asked an employee as we entered by the batting cages and arcades but they weren’t very helpful....More

Great place to see a ballgame. On both sides of the river are good places to go before or after the game. All within walking distance.

Beautiful location. They should reopen the Bath House and allow swimming. The train wasn't running the day we visited.

It always fun to come to City Island, even though there is not as much here as what used to be. But the grandkids loved the train ride and of course the ice cream!

Beautiful venue right alongside the water. It is well maintained with nice water features, a swing set to relax and enjoy the water view between holes of golf. A nice place for kids, groups, and couples of all ages!

We got there early for our noon Pride of Susquehanna sail, so we spent some time walking around this island. It was such a hot and humid day, that we were grateful for the huge trees sheltering the ground. We saw the Senators’ stadium, the...More
