This week’s park is across from the Seawall and Pleasure Pier in Galveston… it’s Menard Park! When you are on the beach, you may not notice it because there is a rec center building on the street. Just behind this there is a splashpad, skate park, dog park and playground.
The two odd things about the park are these… you can see the Pleasure Pier and Fish Tales Restaurant and Country Inn and Suites from the park, but there were no tourists. It’s behind a rec center, so maybe no one knows it is there. Also, when we visited, there were lots of maybe 5th-8th graders, but no adults. No one was misbehaving too badly… but some boys-trying-to-impress-girls was going on.
