Surfside Jetty Park is a 15-acre day use beach park. Its features include a paved parking area with handy access to the beach, harbor channel and jetty, a playground, and restroom facilities.  Natural attractions are fishing, bird watching, wildlife viewing, beachcombing, and shelling.  Historically, Jetty Park sits along what was the most important harborage during the time Texas was a republic; the site of historic Fort Velasco is just outside the park.  The park area also includes the site of the Velasco Town Battery, dating to before the 1860s. The battery - an emplacement with two brass cannon - was turned over to the Confederacy in 1861. Surfside Jetty County Park is at the foot of the East Jetty off Fort Velasco Drive in Surfside.
