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