Seawolf Park is located on Galveston’s Pelican Island, on the site of a former immigration center. It is a popular fishing destination, with multiple fishing piers. It is also features a large playground and the Galveston Naval Museum, which includes the WWII submarine the USS Cavalla and one of only three destroyer escorts in the world, the USS Stewart.
When we visited, we were able to go down into the submarine, the USS Cavalla, and see how the sailors lived and worked during WWII. We were also able to go on board the USS Stewart and see the interior of that ship as well. It was a fascinating history lesson.
Our kids enjoyed the playground nearby as well. We visited in the spring, so it actually got a bit chilly, but I can imagine the fresh ocean breeze being quite refreshing in the summer. The play structures were pretty unique and the kids played for a while without getting bored.
