Town Green Park
Woodlands Destination: Town Green Park
With Lake Robbins Drive at the northern entrance, the South Montgomery County Library to the west, the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion to the east and the Woodlands Waterway along the southern side, The Woodlands Town Green Park is green, accessible and smack dab in the middle of it all. Surrounded by major Woodlands landmarks and popular event venues, the Town Green Park is itself a central gathering area for special occasions and every day activities.
Take Lake Robbins Drive and it will bring you right to the main entrance of Town Green Park. When you enter you find yourself at the main centerpiece of the park, the Great Lawn, a four acre, grassy expanse where friends and families can play a variety of sports and games. This same area also hosts events such as the Waterway Arts Festival, Lighting of the Doves and The Woodlands Marathon. Benches, trees and beautiful green landscaping line both sides of the Great Lawn, providing shade and an area to rest from the day’s activities. At the far end of the Lawn is the Woodlands Waterway where water taxis can take you along the water strip to different landmarks. Visitors also have the option to take the Market Street Trolley or to walk along the pathway that connects the same Woodlands landmarks.
Opened in May of 2006 and designed by the SWA Group, it’s apparent that the designers had families and children in mind. To the west of the Great Lawn you will find the Children’s Garden where three foot hedges form a green maze dotted with oversized sculptures of books. The books feature stories from Aesop’s Fables and are perfect complements to the Library nearby. Near the natural maze is also the Children’s open amphitheater where group outings, events and shows are held. The park also provides amenities such as restrooms and water fountains. All perfect for a fun day outdoors.
