The Waterway

The Woodlands Waterway can be considered the lifeblood of the city. It winds through The Township’s center, spilling into Lake Woodlands and connecting all the attractions along its path. We kayak its waters, dine before its edge, and watch the sun set from its banks. This district offers vibrant nightlife, performing arts, dining, hotels, and outdoor green space. 

You’ll find some of the top attractions in The Woodlands along The Waterway. Attend a concert at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, one of the best amphitheaters in America, and shop till you drop at The Woodlands Mall. Let the kids cool off on the splash pad at The Woodlands Waterway Square, which is also a great starting point to view the many mosaics throughout the city. Rent kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, and swan boats at Riva Row Boat House for a peaceful afternoon on the water. Visit the sculptures and attend the many events throughout the year at Town Green Park

Restaurants on The Waterway in The Woodlands run the gamut from seafood and steaks to Mexican and Italian—with some of the best patios in the area. Weekend brunches, daily happy hours, live music, and award-winning chefs bring vibrancy to these dining spots.
