THE WOODLANDS, Texas – From tennis to kayaking, there are plenty of things to do in the Woodlands. As the State of Texas plans to re-open businesses with phase one, the Woodlands Township is also lifting its ban on facilities and allowing residents to revisit parks. While there are nearly 220 miles of hike and bike pathways, we found seven activities you can do outdoors safely.
