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.

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

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!
