The Woodlands Public Parks

North Shore Park The WoodlandsThere are several different kinds/types of parks in The Woodlands including Townwide Parks, Area Parks, Village Parks, Neighborhood Parks & Amenity Parks. Click here for a discussion of the different park types.


There are "Wheel Friendly Parks" that feature Skateboard Parks (complete with concrete grinding walls, stairs, rails, and bowls) and Bicycle Motocross (BMX) Dirt Tracks.


The Woodlands is also home to five Leash-Free Dog Parks; two in Cochran's Crossing, one in College Park, one in Harper's Landing, and one in Grogan's Mill.


The fourteen Village parks are those that feature swimming pools, including the Rob Fleming Aquatic Center at Rob Fleming Park.


The Woodlands features two frisbee golf (frolf) courses, one at Bear Branch Sports Park and the other at Terramont Park in Sterling Ridge. Additionally, one other disc golf course can be found just outside The Woodlands in Spring.


The Woodlands parks, shopping centers, and villages are, or will be, interconnected via The Woodlands Pathways - 4' wide concrete sidewalks that wind through the many trees and neighborhoods. The pathways also connect the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion and the various free parking areas for the seasonal concerts and events held at the outdoor amphitheater.
