Here for a concert. No place to sit, unless you have a VIP ticket from a sponsor. AND... they don't let you bring chairs or a towel in. No info on this on the website. This is bull$hit and I will never come here again for a show. Totally miserable!

Improved maintenance, plantings and river views make this a pleasant stroll that you can take at your own pace. Let's not pretend there's anything spectacular, awe-inspiring or even breath-taking about the vistas, but most of the views of the West Shore are serene. The grazing geese have left behind fecal tokens of their esteem, but it's easy to avoid if you don't drift off into daydreams, sleep-walking or distracting cell phone conversations. You must share the walkway with bicyclists, so don't weave, bob or stray too much. (The geese won't like that either and may punish you!)

A nice spot of greenery with beautiful trees offering a lovely view of a pretty river, all in the city. Beautiful buildings line the street along the park and river with great views. Is very nice year-round.
Is a very narrow park, several miles long but just 10 yards wide in the northern section. Has a good paved walking trail.
Plenty of park-goers in daylight hours, but pretty empty at night.
Be careful at nighttime as crime in the city is bad, including in the park : muggings and assaults, including a stabbing murder in november of '14.

My daughter and I walked a mile or two along the river and it was really a nice walk. We didn't go to the island, but they have mini golf and other fun things to do on the island.

This is a great park on the Susquehanna River in Harrisburg. Nice scenic place to take a walk. Neighborhood is seedy after dark.

Depending on my mood or state of stress I'll come here and let the children burn some energy while I'll sit and take it all in. Water is very calming and therapeutic for me and the children like it as well so its a win win situation for us.

This is a really good park. It's great for walking or jogging. The view of the river here at sunset is superb!

This is one of my favorite places in Harrisburg for just about everything. Perfect for biking, walking, running, having a picnic, watching strange activities like tight rope walking, or just enjoying a great view!

Have been walking the ever-evolving Riverfront Park for over 40 years now and have watched the lovely evolution of landscaping, exercise stations, art and sculpture pieces, wonderful quotations embedded in plaques on rocks. Along the river it is a peaceful place to keep your body and soul fit.

Harrisburg river front has a great running path. Well lit and busy always feel safe. And you can extend your run by going onto City Island or picking up the Green Belt.
