The island is a great place to view a minor league baseball game. The setting is great and the prices are reasonable for a family. The only downside are the mayflies. Sometimes they are unbearable.

It's nice going to the island to walk around with pets or family. It's nice when they have things going on although sometimes it's not great to have to pay to park

City island is great for walking, people watching, baseball practice and for sports activities. The island has its own train and you can travel on a river boat on the Susquehanna River. Summer activities are numerous. You can even play some miniture golf, and enjoy some food and ice cream, served by local vendors. Great place for families to visit.... More

City Island used to be a dump bit thanks to out old Mayor, Mr. Reed, he cleaned it up and made it a staple of the Harrisburg area. Any trip to Harrisburg would probably include a stop at city island. It has a miner league baseball field, batting boxes, horse stable and other things that appeal to the traveler.

We have been to the ballpark a few times. It has great seating and lots of food choices. Our last visit was with a financial group who had the entire night catered in a private box seat setting with the option of being outside or inside. You can get a beautiful view of the city from the park.

Even though City Island hostas a lot of venues throughout the year, I prefer to go when nothing is happening. Perfect for a leisurely stroll, a tough workout or relaxing by the water. Whatever makes your heart happy, City Island has it.

City Island has a bit to offer for everyone. It has a baseball stadium, water front view of Harrisburg, a mini golf course, and is great for catching Pokémon (for those who still play). The island is a great place to go for the kids as well. Definitely one of my favorite areas to hangout during the summer.
