The Woodlands Waterway turning basin improvements

by The Woodlands

The Woodlands Development Company is overseeing the planning, design and construction for a new turning basin extension project over The Woodlands Waterway™ near Town Green Park in The Woodlands Town Center.


The turning basin extension will replace the existing guardrail and enhance the walkway on the upper portion of the basin and add a boardwalk on the lower portion along the waterway edge, connecting the two walks with three cascading fountains and two sets of stairs. Landscaping and lighting will also be added as well as the addition of seating.

The Town Center Owners Association, which includes property owners in Town Center, is funding the improvements on the turning basin.

The turning basin walkway - across the waterway between Riva Row Boat House and Town Green Park - will be closed now through Feb. 2, 2017 for construction. An estimated completion date is expected in the second quarter of 2017.

Access around The Woodlands Waterway™ is available at eight locations, street level and/or waterway level, during the extension project:

Grogan’s Mill Road (ramp, stairs or pathway)

Six Pines Drive (ramp or stairs)

Woodloch Forest Drive (elevator, ramp or stairs)

Waterway Avenue (stairs or elevator)

Pedestrian Bridge at Waterway Square® Park
