“We are pleased to bring this new event to Waterway Square as it is becoming a popular place for residents and visitors alike to enjoy,” said Nick Wolda, president of The Woodlands Convention & Visitors Bureau. “Waterway Square is becoming iconic in The Woodlands Town Center and is a very important public space for residents and visitors. The Fountains choreographed to music and lights are unique in the Greater Houston region and one of the reasons why The Woodlands is such an incredible town in which to live and visit.”
Chris Nunes, director of Parks and Recreation for the Community Associations of The Woodlands, said, “The Parks and Recreation Department is looking forward to being an active partner in the development of Waterway Square as a destination for residents and visitors to The Woodlands. Summer Nights, Waterway Lights is just the kickoff to what is planned for Waterway Square in the coming months.”
Parking is available at 24 Waterway Parking Garage and the corner lot at Timberloch Place and Waterway Avenue for a minimal cost.
Waterway Square, located along Lake Robbins Drive between Waterway Avenue and Woodloch Forest Drive, is open seven (7) days a week from 6 a.m. to midnight, and features a 120-foot long, 10-foot high stone water wall where ribbons of water flow down seven terraced levels to a lower pond with 20 cascade jets. The water wall is flanked by stairs and stepped water cascades, all leading to an upper fountain containing 80 jets and three boomer jets that shoot water up to 75 feet high. The water jets, waterfalls and cascades are designed to create a variety of displays and effects ranging from the subtle flow of water over a stone wall to dancing columns of water, to intense bursts of water shooting several stories into the air. Waterway Square features seven speakers on the upper level and 12 speakers on the lower level.
