Skyline Sports Complex is a sports complex/stadium on City Island, along the Susquehanna River, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

The original structure was built in 1987 and is adjacent to Metro Bank Park.

The complex/stadium hosts numerous events annually and is the home stadium for the Harrisburg City Islanders soccer team. It was formerly home to the Central Penn Piranha football team.

The field was under renovation in 2008, which included repositioning and the planting of new grass, in preparation for the 2009 Islanders' season. The upgrade project was headed by Mayor Stephen R. Reed and completed internally by the City of Harrisburg's Department of Parks and Recreation staff.
