Sylvan Beach Pavilion, located in La Porte’s historic Sylvan Beach Park on Galveston Bay, celebrates community values that generations of Harris County residents have associated with the Park. Social dancing, long a mainstay of the park, is celebrated in the pavilions design that features a 10,000 ft2 glass walled ballroom with a 3,600 ft2 circular dance floor. Whether the ballroom is used for dancing, or for listening to a music venue, or to provide banquet seating with a breathtaking view, the pavilion can continue to provide for our community as it was originally designed. Despite years of conscious neglect, this historic building has been successfully renovated, reinstating its status as the showcase venue on Galveston Bay.
The county owned and Shafaii operated venue is a state archeological landmark, historic socialite destination and the venue for various events past, present and for the future.
