An Evening Out on The Woodlands Waterway, a Texas style attraction

The entire family can enjoy an evening out on The Waterway, so can a couple or friends or an individual. This particular evening, the waterway was lit by the lights of the waterway AND the full moon. Children were playing in the wading fountains with parents close by watching, couples were enjoying the romantic atmosphere of a moonstruck night, visitors and residents were taking a ride along the waterway in water taxis, a social event was going on outside in Goose's Acre, a mother duck was escorting her 14 little ducklings along the waterway, the light show at the square was attracting visitors, and families were just out to enjoy the ambiance of the people, attractions and nature surrounding them. This is a great place to be on a warm or cool evening here in The Woodlands.

The Woodlands Waterway Square Flickering Fountains

Whether you are visitor or a resident, the Woodlands Waterway is a terrific place to be in the evening, especially in the spring, fall or early summer. It is a nice place to visit during the day as well. This fountain is located just east of the Marriott Hotel and very close to the Tinseltown movie theater. It is a place to sit down and read, a place for lovers, a place for children to play, a place to relax with the sounds of rushing water, a place to enjoy a colored lights water show that is set to music.

The primary fountain of Waterway Square moves a considerable amount of water and changes its pattern continuously. Here it is in its glory.

After the sun sets, the colored lights in the fountains are spectacular and change from green to blue to purple to red. The fountain complex is a constantly changing scene, choreographed to various short songs.

If you look closely, you will see the water dancing and this particular evening, it was dancing under the moonlight.

Additional information about Waterway Square can be obtained from The Woodlands Township website.
