It is great to have a space like this within walking distance of downtown, but there is so much more that can be done with the space. The ballpark is a real asset but much of the rest of the island needs upgraded and refurbished....More

Great "hidden gem" of Harrisburg! With walking trails, baseball, mini-golf, boat ramp and so much more..... Fun for everyone!

Something for everyone in the family. Catch a ball game! Play a round or two of putt-putt or perhaps just take a stroll along the pathway. A great place with activities that are relaxing and fun filled.

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.

In town on a business trip and found City Island on our drive back to the hotel from dinner. Very glad we stopped to check it out. The island is fairly unique, with some nice trails to walk, or bike, and has a walking bridge...More

I have heard about the "train bridge" from my kids since they first visited it 12 years ago. It did not disappoint! Something about being suspended high over the Susquehanna river where countless trains once crossed is truly magical. The view over the river is...More
