Texas is known as a state with a heart for the great outdoors, but Galveston’s unique oceanside location makes it a prime destination for those who love to vacation and explore amazing outdoor landmarks. Known for being a city with a gift for historical preservation, Seawolf Park is a must-stop site for those looking to experience breathtaking outdoor beauty alongside historical relevance in Galveston. Combining cultural activities with an opportunity to reflect on moment of historical significance, Seawolf Park hits a unique balance and blend that’s difficult to find anywhere else.

Activities and Attractions

Nestled into Pelican Island, Seawolf Park was the result of an effort to transform this former immigration site into a public space. Providing open green spaces and glittering waterfront vistas, Seawolf Park is known as a prime place for family picnics as it hosts a number of playgrounds. Several piers make Seawolf Park an ideal place for fishing as well. Basketball and volleyball courts as well as several grills make this park a place where friends and family regularly convene for social outings.

Military Exhibits

What makes Seawolf Park particularly unique are the WWII tourist attractions that are incorporated into the park’s boundaries. Visitors are free to visit the USS Cavalla, a wartime submarine as well as the destroyer escort USS Stewart. These exhibits function under the umbrella of The American Undersea Warfare Center which provides educational information on how these ships were utilized during battle.

To Know Before You Go

A wealth of meaningful experiences awaits visitors to Seawolf Park, but it’s important to know a few things before you go. Those traveling with pets should be aware that while dogs are allowed in the park on leashes, they are not allowed near the military exhibits. Those excited about the potential for RV camping should check the park’s online site regularly as plans are currently in the works to create dedicated spaces where guests can enjoy overnight accommodations right in the heart of the park!
