While visiting the Whittaker Center on a recent Saturday, we walked the several blocks to Riverfront Park to check it out. We were pleasantly surprised by the coolness of the walking paths, footbridge to City Island and the overall convenience of the park to the city. Seemed friendly, safe for walkers, joggers and bikers alike. Watch your step by the path right by the water as there are no railings.

Walk Along The River
Apr 2021
It is a nice long walk along the river which is very peaceful and tranquil. Some statues and murals along the way and even a nice garden with a gazebo. There is a path right next to the river or one at street level. Either one is pleasant

Neat walk by the river
Oct 2020
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.

Nice place to walk the river
Jul 2020 • Solo
I try to walk here whenever I get to City Island. Both the Market Street bridge and Walnut Street bridge connect Riverfront Park to City Island. It offers great views of both the river and City Island. The Capital Complex is also just a short walk from Riverfront.

Ground

Had a wonderful time. A nice walkway to walk along the river. The grounds are well kept. If you go take your lawn chairs, blanket and your cooler with snacks.

Great for a Run
Aug 2019
They're making the best of the space between the town and the river, but it honestly isn't really a park - think more of an urban 'trail'. It benefits from the pleasant aesthetic of the river and some historic homes along the street, with plenty of signs to let you know what you're looking at. However, I'd say this space is best suited for runs and bike rides. They've definitely invested in it as a physical recreation space, with workout stations along the path. It's pleasant and flat and definitely an ideal place to go on a run if you're visiting Harrisburg.

Fireworks on the Riverfront!
Jul 2019 • Couples
Hello! We traveled east and stayed at a beautiful Airbnb on the historic North street in Harrisburg. Just a short walking distance from the riverfront, we couldn't have been happier. We attended the fireworks here and enjoyed all the yummy food and wines. We met some nice couples and enjoyed a beautiful fireworks display. Will definitely return to this quaint capital city! Loved our stay!

Historical Architecture
Jul 2019 • Couples
When an event takes place along the Riverfront, an option for parking is located at City Island. We were charged $5.00 to park here on the 4th of July. Walk across the open-grated bridge to access the event. There is a lot of historical architecture along this route. Many plaques help to orient you to the name and significance of the selected buildings.
