July is National Parks
& Recreation Month
Parks in The Woodlands
At the height of the summer season it is time to enjoy part of what makes The Woodlands so special—the many parks and recreation programs and amenities. You can play your favorite sport, enjoy the outdoors, spend time with family and friends, or just kick back and relax. The Woodlands features more than 110 parks and over 160 miles of pathway awaiting your discovery.
In 1985, the National Recreation and Park Association designated the month of July as Parks and Recreation and Month. Recreation facilities and parks across the country celebrate by kicking off summer programs and pulling their communities together to volunteer, get involved in outdoor physical activities and become advocates for parks and recreation. In The Woodlands, many residents live within a quarter of a mile of a park and often have a pathway just outside their back yard which will safely lead them to the various neighborhood (village) pools and parks.
The Woodlands Parks and Recreation Department is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for residents through recreation programming, leisure activities and conservation efforts. Try something new this summer, enjoy a nature hike in the George Mitchell Preserve, Kayak along the Waterway and on Lake Woodlands, swim at a woodlands pool, go fishing, picnic at a park—and create a lifelong memory with your family and friends.
