This review is for the water golf since there doesn't seem to be a section to review it by itself (not surprising that the business wouldn't want people to review it). We arrived with 5 in our group and were not asked to separate. We waited until the group of 2 in front of us finished the first hole then proceeded to play. After a few holes, the male from the entrance booth said there were 2-3 vacant holes ahead of us and to play faster. Even a group of 4 people should play slower than a group of 2 and there should be space between. When we got to the next hole, I noticed there was only one empty hole not 2 or 3 between our group and the previous group and then when we got to the swings we had to wait because the group in front of us was swinging because they had to wait for the group in front of them. Once we finished I told the man at the entrance that he lost a customer because there was no reason for us to rush through and treat his customers so poorly. His response was that he didn't care, he got his money and that I should be thankful because I used a coupon.

Very cool place to walk around and explore while you're in Harrisburg. Take your time and walk across the bridge onto the island (there's a pedestrian ridge and take your time exploring the island. There's batting cages, mini golf, boat rentals, special events, mi or league baseball. Parking costs over here but it's free in Harrisburg on the weekends. Nicelittlerestaurant on the island that had a cool tropical feel to it that I would t mind trying out, also pony rides, and carriage rides. Cool views of the city as well. Nice view from the top of the parking garage actually.

We have been to City Island a number of times, mostly for baseball games. However, a few times we have gone with youth sports teams to enjoy the train rides, miniature golf, batting cages and picnics. It is a short walk to Harrisburg for a festival, or a pre-game snack. Good family place.

NIce place for walking on a evening. Take in a Senators, or Harisburg Heat game. The consession's are a little pricy but overall a very enjoyable place.

Catch a Senators game, miniature golf, ride a train or take a riverboat cruise. Many things to do on City Island.
