Waterway Square (located at 31 Waterway Square Place) is a one-acre public plaza with unique water features and green spaces that serve as the centerpiece of The Woodlands. Nearby restaurants and other entertainment options make it the perfect location to meet up and get together with family and friends.

For the Waterway Nights Concert series, you can bring blankets, lawn chairs, coolers, and even your pets! It’s a great time to sit out and enjoy everything The Woodlands has to offer and to experience something new.

A majority of these concerts showcase the talent of local and regional performers, many of which have a large following here in The Woodlands area,” said Lichenstein Meaux. “We strive to provide a diverse, family-friendly entertainment lineup that is appropriate for all ages.”


The Woodlands Township puts on the event to bring awareness to the arts and community. Woodlands Waterway Nights is a free event going on select Saturdays from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
