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.
Play a Tennis Match
Visitor Review: “Very nice park with 5 tennis courts, a baseball field, trails, splash pad, lap pool, and even a climbing wall from the pool.” - Candace

Ride a Bike

Play some Disc Golf
Player Review: “Moderately challenging disc golf course, there are really big hills that make some of the shots super interesting. Well maintained trails, but there is a lot of foot traffic from families walking around the park so you need to make sure your lane is clear before you throw.” -Doug
