Town Green Park

2099 Lake Robbins Drive
The Woodlands, Texas 77380

Town Green Park is the 100th park to be constructed in The Woodlands and serves as a special community event gathering place. Various elements of the park set it apart from other Woodlands Parks, not the least of which being the dramatic entrance; two grand columns, nearly 19 feet tall, both topped with a stylized, five-foot pinecone, welcome visitors to what Town Center Improvement District and The Woodlands Development Company call The Woodlands Central Park.

As visitors pass through the entrance to the Park, they are offered a clear view of 'The Great Lawn'. An immense, grass-covered area extending south to The Woodlands Waterway® creating a grand view and allows for a wide variety of summer activities. Just inside the entrance and extending along both sides, visitors are afforded several bench seats along the beautifully landscaped area. To the west, an area fenced by trellis is covered with flowering vines and a few small trees provides intermittent shade, while the east side features over 50 types of perennial vegetation and flourishes with the assorted flowers, trees and shrubs discretely hiding the Cynthia Woods Pavilion perimeter pathways. Additionally, the eastern side offers children a labyrinth featuring oversized tablets with Aesop's Fables.

Park Amenities:

  • Restrooms
  • Children’s literary labyrinth with life-size Aesop fables
  • Entertainment stage area with natural seating
  • Children’s amphitheater

Sport Amenities:

  • Large, open field

Nearly two football fields long, The Great Lawn is covered with a lush carpet of Bermuda grass, creating a “free-play” area which is a great place to toss a Frisbee, fly a kite, enjoy a blanket style picnic, or just relax in the sun. The Great Lawn stretches from the park’s entrance at the north end, all the way south, to The Woodlands Waterway where you can pick up the Water Taxi, The Market Street Trolley, or just walk along the scenic pathway. The pathway continues to the east alongside The Woodlands Pavilion, past the Waterway Marriott Hotel, the Goose's Acre, the colored light water fountains of Waterway Square Park and all the way around to The Woodlands Mall. A walk to the east along the pathway will (eventually) take you all the way to the recently developed East Shore District and Lake Woodlands.

 

The Children’s Garden

at Town Green Park incorporates landscape design elements with an entertaining literary experience complementing the neighboring South Montgomery County Library. Children can let their imagination run wild, literally, through a natural labyrinth of 3 foot high hedges. As they weave through this natural maze, children will encounter large storybooks with contemporary updates from Aesop’s Fables, thereby making The Children’s Garden a fun and truly literature-friendly experience.
An inspiring and thought-provoking sculpture titled “With Hope” features a statue of a man releasing a flock of doves into the air is the focal point of a quiet spot adjacent to the park entrance.

Town Green Park provides a scenic destination for Town Center visitors as well as a venue for special events taking place throughout the year in The Woodlands such as the Lighting of the Doves at Christmas time and the Red, Hot and Blue Festival on July 4.
