Galveston Beaches will be closed July 3-5, 2020
For the health and safety of visitors and employees, the Galveston Park Board has adopted rigorous cleaning procedures at its parks. Among the procedures put in place are cleaning bathroom surfaces and high touchpoint areas on an hourly basis, increasing the frequency of trash removal, and sanitizing park equipment daily. In addition, measures have been taken to ensure proper social distancing in queues and at public gathering places.



The Galveston Island State Park was named one of the top 5 “Best Gulf Coast Beaches” by Travel Channel in 2013.  The park offers a quiet oasis on the island’s West End where visitors can explore the Gulf of Mexico or Galveston Bay.  Families can enjoy kayak tours, beach and surf explorations, bird walks, nature field trips and fishing clinics at no cost.  Many activities require advance sign-up. Visit for information. The park also offers beach camping. For information, visit
