My family and I visited the park last weekend. It has been updated. The improvement's make a visit more enjoyable. We enjoyed the sub and the ship. The ship is a work in progress. I would recommend this park if in the Galveston area.

This is a fun experience for kids and history buffs, alike. Admission includes parking, and a self-guided walking tour of both the submarine and warship. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable.

Every time we visit Galveston, we go here. It is fun to watch people fishing, feed the seagulls and take great photos of the tankers out in the ocean. Occasionally you will see some very rare birds or even dolphins.

My wife and I toured the submarine and submarine hunting ship during a recent trip to Galveston Island. We both found them to be very interesting and worth the time to stop and visit. Areas in the sub were well marked and explained what each section was for and how things in them worked. The sub hunter ship was interesting... More

A family friendly pier to go fishing. You can visit a ship and a submarine. As most fishing parks do not expect to be ultra clean.

Used to take the kids there fishing and playing in the park until they got to Junior High. Returned a few months ago after many years and while the pavilion damaged by Ike is still closed, the grounds are much improved and the fishing ares adjacent to the submarines were paved nicely with new wood rails. Portable potties serve the... More

I guess everyone has an opinion that is why we write reviews, I am a little bit surprised at some of the negative ones guess you can't please everyone. I came here many times before the park, submarine and destroyer were there. This was a former Leper Colony that was converted to the park and attractions. This place is rich... More
