Visitors can enjoy approximately 2,000 linear feet of shoreline access, with benches and walkways installed for the public’s bay-viewing pleasure. Sylvan Beach is the only public beach park in Harris County. (Yes, there is a fishing pier!)
Located on Galveston Bay at the East end of the City of La Porte, the Park includes one of the best free skate parks in the area, a boating launch ramp, playground equipment, fishing pier and multiple picnic areas for families or large groups.
At the park entrance, visitors can visit the depot from the old Houston-Galveston-San Antonio railroad that serves as a museum for the La Porte Heritage Society. The park is open daily until 10 p.m.
