The Harrisburg Senators are a minor league team owned by the Washington Nationals. The stadium, FNB Field, is located on City Island. It is easy to get to, but parking will cost you $5. If you are a baseball fan you will enjoy the closeness...More

Love walking round here with my family with the gophers, wildlife and Canada geese running around. You can grab a bite to eat at the waterfront cafes and go on a boat ride in Summer. City Island is home to the Harrisburg Senators
