GALVESTON — Imagine a Stewart Beach that includes a raised boardwalk, restaurants and retail shops. One that includes a large shaded area for concerts, a gated area for pets and a modern pavilion for weddings. Imagine all that happening in the next five years.
On Tuesday, the Park Board of Trustees got its first look at a master plan that includes those things and more. The board heard a presentation from Knudsen LP, the urban planning firm hired earlier this year to study ways that the board could better use its two most popular beach parks — Stewart Beach and East Beach.
