Creekwood Park, The Woodlands Texas

This park is genuinely a very beautiful park. Some days, I meander in the park to watch the ducks. This particular evening in the Spring of 2009, there were Mallards and Wood Ducks.

This park is widely known for its fishing (there is almost always someone fishing here like this gentleman) and its wheel friendly area.

It is located across from McCullough school. There is a place on the walk paths near the pool that has an interesting montage of leaves laid there by someone shortly after the concrete was laid. There is a variety of ducks on the pond. This pair caught my fancy. There are catfish and bass in this catch and release pond. Each year, the association provides a catfish fishing tournament here (keep what you catch) and a fishing training class for youngsters. It has the usual pool, a soccer field, basketball court, tennis court, tables, and a pavilion. Nice family park being enjoyed by father and daughter one warm, Spring day.

The Woodlands - Leaders in Parks Development and Receational Amenities

It would be no surprise to many residents in The Woodlands to hear that we just received two awards from the Texas Recreation and Parks Society 1. We have great parks here. Recent developments in Creekside Park and Town Center are jewels we wear proudly. In Creekside Park, the Community Associations of The Woodlands received the Recreation Facility Design Award for the Rob Fleming Aquatic Center which is recognized for its design quality and recreational usefulness. In Town Center, the Township received the Park Design Excellence Award for the Fountains at Waterway Square, also for its design quality and recreational usefulness.

These awards were presented by an organization dedicated to advancing the professional aspect of Texas park development and maintenance. Connecting to this organization ensures that our parks and recreation department alongside of the Woodlands Development Company engages in state-of-the-art processes and can contribute and be recognized for their contributions in this profession.
