Island Central is a zone in Club Penguin Island. As its name implies, it is located in the center of the island. It is a town that is home to many buildings, although most are not yet open, Team Dance Battle, a Disney Shop, busking stations, and Franky's.
The zone opened in the 1.7.1 update, right before Halloween 2017.
In the 1.8.0 update, Igloos & Interiors and the Tram Station both opened.
In the center of the zone, there is a mural on the ground by the path to the Beacon Boardwalk, and south there is the Team Dance Battle on a raised platform, above a river, which flows to the east. To the right, there is the Igloos & Interiors shop and a tram station that can take players to igloos, and nearby, bushes and a small flowerbed with multi-colored tulips. By the river, there are multiple benches.
On the west end of the zone, there are multiple buildings in a row with doors that are currently barricaded with construction tape. One of the buildings has a mural with four penguins drawn on it. On the farthest end there is a stone wall around the edge of the zone, the town flag at the end of the path, and multiple large trees. Beyond the wall there is a forest.
Near the tram station, there is a Disney Shop, larger than the one at the Boardwalk, and a fountain and banners in front of it. South of the shop are busking stations by the river, with a percussion set, acoustic guitar, and microphone. Behind the shop are raised tram rail lines. Further east is a door that connects to Mt. Blizzard, and beyond that, Franky's, a pizza place, with a kitchen inside. Surrounding the east end are a pile of snow-covered rocks. The river also ends below Franky's, into a sewer.
- During Halloween 2017, jack-o-lanterns, colored lights, hay bales, and balloons were placed all around the zone, on buildings, walls, etc. In a corner, next to the path leading to the Beacon Boardwalk, there was a limited-time Halloween shop and the Deco-nator 3000. Gary stood by the shop and tasked players visiting the zone with stopping the ghosts haunting the area.
In front of the Disney Shop there was a scarecrow and a timer floating above it, which would display the time until the scarecrow would turn into a ghost. While the ghost event was active, players could throw snowballs at the scarecrow, similar to the Crate Co. target game, and potentially win 20 coins.

- A mosaic in the zone resembles the one seen at the Snow Forts during the Waddle On Party.
- The flag by the stone wall on the western end of the zone resembles a simplistic version of a real-life collectable pin.
- According to a loading screen message, the image featured on the flag is the official island crest.
- On September 1, 2017, part of the zone was featured in a blurred image on the Island News Blog as part of a sneak peek for the We Are the Penguins music video.
