Day visit

City Island is walkable from the downtown area. It has a River boat, a baseball stadium, places to eat and a beach. It’s very clean.

Baseball park with parking
Feb 2020
The city tries to make this location something more than it is. The walking bridge, from the island to the city, is unique. The walking bridge from the island to Wormleysburg, has been washed out for years. The paddle boat is docked here and is a unique experience however, has limits as the river is shallow and the boat is very small. At the end of the day this is simply the location of the baseball stadium and its parking lot.

Baseball, events and park in the city
Nov 2019
City island is an easy walk from downtown over a bridge. The island is in the middle of the Susquehanna river. The Senators, Harrisburg's AA Baseball team, have an excellent stadium in the middle of the island and although we were there after baseball season, our son confirmed the games are excellent in the summer months. The island also hosts other events, although not during our visit in November. Definitely check the calendar. Also saw lots of paddle boats and party boats docked for the winter, which can be rented in the summer.

Fun Diversion
Jun 2019
We took kids on our mission trip to City Island for a "night out." It is a fun place to go. we treated them to ice cream and putt-putt golf. There was a lot of life on the island as there were volleyball games going on as well. I recommend visiting it.

nice time

There's always something to do on City Island and it has a great view of Harrisburg across the river. You can rent out the pavilions for functions, attend a baseball game, play mini golf volleyball or soccer, they have little restaurants and shoppes. Depending on when you go you pay or may not have to pay for parking.

Nice Surprise
Jul 2019 • Family
We were visiting PA and were interested in outside activities. I found the information about City Island from our hotel and we decided to drive there. There is a baseball stadium for the Senators and food and the steamboat cruise and batting cages. You can also rent bikes and pedal around the area. I suggest you take the train ride around the park to see what is available. Good for all ages.

If you are not a resident of the area, you probably know nothing about this island. It is a nice place to just walk around and enjoy the very shops.
