Nice job, Mr Bowser!

I ride the trails, roads, and beaches of the State Park, and I can attest to the heightened interest as well as the greater challenge compared to riding on the road. Anytime I tire of walking my neighborhood, the seawall and the beach, the State Park provides a welcome change of pace, with, as Frank says, miles of trails with animal and plant life you just can't see in town. And as far as kayaking goes, I haven't found another place on the Island that combines the variety of scenery and fishing opportunities with the ease of access that the Park does. Galveston Island State Park is a true gem that Island residents as well as tourists are very fortunate to have.

Of course you have to pay for it, but it's a bargain.
