Sanitation Enhancements
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 center of Galveston’s beach activity takes place along the island’s famous Seawall Boulevard. This urban park stretches more than 10 miles offering plenty of beach as well as the nation’s longest continuous sidewalk – great for running, biking or people watching. Beaches along the seawall offer easy access to the island’s many beachfront restaurants, resorts and tourist attractions, such as the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier amusement park that stands on a pier over the Gulf of Mexico at Seawall and 25th Street.
