When you arrive on Galveston Island and exit 61st Street, one of the first things you'll see is the Lee and Joe Jamail Bay Park. After Hurricane Ike struck Galveston Island in 2008, Washington Park was damaged beyond repair. This park and local fishing hole lay in disrepair until The Lee and Joe Jamail Foundation - along with the City of Galveston, Galveston County, FEMA, and others - collaborated to rebuild. After construction was completed in 2016, the park was reopened with the name Lee and Joe Jamail Bay Park.

Every fisherman needs to start somewhere, and for most locals the Lee and Joe Jamail Bay Park is where you learn to bait a hook. (Not every Islander is born with a salty soul!) The Lee and Joe Jamail Bay Park offers free truck and trailer parking, free boat launch, covered picnic tables, barbecue grills, and seasonally available restrooms. There are also electrical outlets available under the pavilion on the south side of the park. This family-friendly park is open 24 hours per day.
