Sylvan Beach Park… Play at the beach, without driving to Galveston!

Address: 636 N Bayshore Dr, La Porte, TX 77571

Play at the beach… without driving to Galveston!

Sylvan Beach Park has a small white sand beaches, a playground, a skate park, picnic areas, restrooms, showers, a fishing pier and boat ramps.

In La Porte, not too far from the San Jacinto Monument and Battleship Texas is the big park full of families. Parking is free and you only need to pay for the fishing pier.


The white sand beaches are small, but we do not need much room to dig and splash. Plus, we get to watch a lot of huge ships pass through the bay!

The beach area is full sun, but there are a lot of shaded picnic tables close by. The playground is also new since our last visit… and also has some shade.

Right next to the park is the La Porte Heritage Society. On weekends you can tour the old depot and an old caboose.

We do like our trips to Galveston best… but this is a fun stop when we’re east of Houston!
