Shadowbend Park

4192 Lake Woodlands Drive
The Woodlands, Texas 77381

Shadowbend Park, featuring the Shadowbend Pool is the 12th park to be built in The Woodlands. As is the case in the early days of any development project as enormous as The Woodlands, Texas, the wheels of progres turn slowly and the park, though acquired in 1983, was not dedicated for use until 1991. At over twelve and a half acres, this very large park is often utilized for little league soccer and lacrosse games. Just over the long, woodplank bridge from the main park area are five lighted tennis courts. Shadowbend Park is located near the southwest corner of Lake Woodlands Drive and Shadowbend Drive, just west of St. Paul Church. In 2014, Shadowbend Park underwent a major renovation, including a new playground and swings replace the old play equipment, and connect to an expanded stone-paved plaza adjacent to the large pavilion. The tennis area renovations included additional parking spaces, a new pavilion with serving counter, picnic tables, and a new shortcut sidewalk between the parking area and the bridge.
