Beach and Park Operations


The Park Board Operations Department handles the day-to-day operations and maintenance of Galveston’s public beaches. This includes operating several island beach "parks" that offer amenities to the public, including Stewart Beach, R.A. Apffel (or East Beach), Dellanera RV Park, and the two County Pocket Parks on the West End.

In addition, the Operations Department includes a “Coastal Zone Management” team that provides seaweed removal and litter control services at public beach areas along the island’s 32-mile shoreline.

The department also manages "projects" taken on by the Park Board, including beach nourishment initiatives, upgrades to park amenities and more.
