Pelican Island's a Tucked Away Oasis of Fun and Culture
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
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.
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!
