This is a very good place to walk ride bike jog or just sit and relax. There are places to enjoy good food and of course watch a baseball game with the senators.

Love walking round here with my family with the gophers, wildlife and Canada geese running around. You can grab a bite to eat at the waterfront cafes and go on a boat ride in Summer. City Island is home to the Harrisburg Senators
