Last week, I took my first walk at the newly renovated Sylvan Beach. The beach is wonderful! There are two small sandy areas at each end, a broad sidewalk leading to each beach, marble benches, small jetties jutting out to the bay, and gorgeous antique lamps lining the sidewalk. The citizens of La Porte and the surrounding area have a big reason to celebrate: there is a beach nearby to enjoy the water!
The press release which gives the details of the project was posted on the Texas General Land Office website January 13, 2010. The project was a joint venture of the Texas General Land Office, the City of La Porte, and Harris County.
