Below are some of our favorite spots to play Pokémon GO as a family in Harrisburg & West Shore. We decide our favorite spots based on having more than five PokéStop and are easily navigated with a stroller. Parks are our favorite spot to check because we can check out swing sets, pack a lunch or dinner and have plenty of room to run around.
If I missed any of your favorite family-friendly spots to hunt Pokemon in Harrisburg & West Shore please leave it in the comments - we are always on the look-out for new spots!
CITY ISLAND, HARRISBURG - The northern tip of City Island has quickly become a Pokémon GO hot spot – especially in the mini golf area. There are a ton of PokéStops in that area, wild Pokemon & gyms, so parking and walking around will generally yield great results. City Island is also the home to Pride of the Susquehanna Riverboat & Harrisburg Senators, so you could make a nice day out of your trip to City Island. Later in the evenings is a super popular time where there are frequently trainers using lures.
NEW CUMBERLAND BOROUGH PARK - Nestled along the Yellow Breeches Creek in New Cumberland, the Borough Park is a great spot to catch Pokemon. The park consists of a large loop that you can easily drive, a playground area that is slightly shaded, multiple baseball fields and pavilions to pack a lunch to eat at. It’s also a quick walk to Bridge St/Downtown New Cumberland where you can visit any of the number of cute & locally own businesses or restaurants.
ROOF PARK, NEW CUMBERLAND - Roof Park seems to be the Pikachu hot spot for our area. It is home to a pretty awesome playground, baseball fields, pavilion & plenty of loops for walking. There really isn’t any shade, but it’s easy walking and the playground is great.
