Navy Ships, Fishing & Great Playground at Seawolf Park on Pelican Island/Galveston

Address: 700 Pelican Island Causeway, Galveston, TX 77550
Cost: $6/car, plus admission to tour the ships or to fish

We love to tour old Navy ships and we love great playgrounds… and Seawolf Park has both!

Seawolf Park has popular lighted fishing piers, picnic spots, the Undersea Warfare Center and the great playground. From Broadway Street in Galveston, there is a long, almost empty, road that takes you from the busy beaches to this park.

When you pull up, there is a booth to pay for parking and admission to the ships. (You can get the current rates HERE.) On one side of the parking lot are the ships… and on the other is the amazing playground!

The playground has a lot of climbing structures that let you start on one side and climb your way to the other, without touching the ground. (My ninja warriors approve!)

The playground is right by the fishing piers and the water… and is also in full sun… so once we are hot we head to the ships for some shade and air conditioning.

The WWII submarine, the USS Cavalla, and one of only three destroyer escorts in the world, the USS Stewart are on dry land and open for your to tour. (Parts of these old ships are also air conditioned.)

Restroom trucks (with water) are by the ships and another real restroom is in a building near the playground.

Next time you are in Galveston, check out this out-of-the-way park. It was not too far from the busy beaches… but a really great addition to our Galveston day trip!
