The Woodlands Waterway®, a 1.4 - mile long water amenity, transportation corridor and linear park, links all of these activities into a carefully-planned 24/7 dynamic, urban atmosphere that is perfectly in sync with its natural surroundings. Water taxis, trolleys, bicycles and pedestrian walkways allow visitors to leave their cars and step into a relaxing, attractive cultural center all connected by the cooling presence of water.
The centerpiece of the Waterway is Waterway Square, a one-acre plaza with multiple water features including a 120-foot long terraced, boomer jets that spray water 60-feet into the air, and fountains choreographed to music and accented with colored lights. A children's interactive fountain set into a mosaic work of art adds to the festive ambiance at this urban venue.
Residents make their homes along The Waterway at one of the nearby urban communities – the stately brick homes of The Remington Brownstones; the edgy, urban Waterway Lofts, and the townhomes of Waterway Village. The Boardwalk at Town Center, a 450-residence luxury apartment community features sophisticated touches like rooftop gardens overlooking The Waterway and adjoining Riva Row Park with kayak (similar to a canoe) rentals.
