Activities for Kids of all Ages

The Woodlands is home to an ever-growing population of young people, and they're all looking for the same thing; "something" to do! Fortunately, The Woodlands has a multitude of activities for kids of all ages, all year round. From multi-platinum artists' concerts at the Pavilion to free concerts at Northshore Park. Skating at one of nine wheel-friendly parks, or swimming at one of The Woodlands thirteen area pools. Sports and local band nights for tweens at the Gorilla Hole, and things to do with your preschooler seven days a week. There's no for your kids to say there's nothing to do here in The Woodlands! Fun for kids


Nearly all year long, kayaks (single) and tandem kayaks (for two) are available for rental at the Rival Row Boat House on The Waterway, just southwest of the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. Kayaking out on Lake Woodlands is a great way to get a different perspective of the area, including an up close and personal look at the Midgard Serpent out in the waters just off of Southshore Park.

Several festivals and other outdoor events held throughout the year in Town Center. Festival events are frequently held on the Great Lawn in Town Green Park including IWOW, the annual Crawfish festival, and the annual Waterway Arts Festival. The annual Red, Hot & Blue festival (July 4th) is such a large event that it is spread out between Waterway Square and Town Green Park while other festivities are held only at Waterway Square. The annual Winter Wonderland and Ice Rink are held in what could be described as the middle of Town Center (corner of Six Pines and Lake Robbins drive) between Market Street and Tinseltown 17.
