Swimming Pools In The Woodlands

There are fourteen pools and aquatic facilities located throughout The Woodlands, the most recent being the Wendtwoods swimming pool and park in the Village of Creekside Park, which opened early summer 2013. Each of them offer a variety of water-based fun and relaxation, sure to help you keep your cool in the hot Texas summer. Enjoy everything from water-spray at either of the three different splashpads and spraygrounds, to diving and the water slides or drifting along the lazy river at the Rob Fleming Aquatic Center in the Village of Creekside Park. Every Village in The Woodlands has at least one place to swim, many have more than one - and there will likely be more pools and aquatic facilities in The Woodlands in the future.
