“Good place to eat a lunch in your car or on a park bench”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

Good place to walk your dog in the morning or evening ,it close's at nite you cant fish for free you can only fish from the pay pier you can't eat the fish you catch you can watch tankers and cargo ship come in and out the channel while you eat your lunch so exciting, they do have a skate board park for the kids that looks nice and a old train depot but there's not a too much for the tourist as far as things to do, i go almost everyday and i sit and watch the sun rise and see a few people walk there dogs I think they should charge a dollar just to drive in ,

“awsome beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

We went to galveston the week before Sunday and I didn't enjoyed it at all ...couldnt find parking close by the water,we had to play $15.00 for parking...Went to Sylvan Beach park and we enjoyed it so much ,it was crowded but nice ,we able to park close enough to where we could walk ...Ilove it ...Yes it's noisey ,but being that it was Memorial day what so you expect,just people having fun...I guess if you really want to relax then stay home ...to me it was relaxing ...I;m planing on going back...Forget galveston,its dirty and too much seaweed...Now don't get me wrong I like the Stripe that is real nice ...From Stafford Tx.

“Nice Enough Park in the City”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

The Sylvan Beach Park is a nice city park with areas for family picnics, play areas for the children and is generally a place worth checking out.

“Too bad”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

This used to be a quiet, relaxing place to sit or to bring the kids. Now it is overrun most weekends by loud crowds that do not seem to know what a trashcan is for. And do not go on a major holiday! Adding the two small sandy "beachettes" looks nice but I would not swim in water that has signs posted "do not eat the fish".

“Oasis among oil refineries”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Well conceived. Lengthy wooden wharf for fishermen and great photo opportunities, especially at sunset. Clean, convenient, restful. Nice but fairly short walk along the beach.
