I really enjoy visiting this island. It's got a nice paved path all around it, this old bath house that is locked up but still neat to look at. It also has playground equipment for kids, mini golf, and some sort of ice cream stand at the north end. There are also carriage rides, but I haven't done that yet.... More

Where else do you find a small island with a AA baseball field with mini golf? Had to stop and check out and even though we didn't watch the baseball game it seemed like a cool environment to watch. We did play mini golf though and a more challenging course than most places. At the same time we also saw... More

The ballpark is really nice but everything else was mostly closed and run down looking. Wasn't impressed overall but I did enjoy the stadium

City Island really is a "must experience" place when in the Harrisburg area! SO MUCH to do on and see on this island and close by! You could easily make a day of it with all the things to do from catching a Senator's baseball game with beautiful fireworks after the game at night, a gorgeous waterfront mini golf course,... More

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.
