Sprayground water attractions in The Woodlands Township opened June 3 for a season running through Oct. 31, and season passes are available for the pool season beginning June 6, the township announced this week.

The township's five spraygrounds, also known as splash pads, provide opportunities for children to play in water that is sanitized, chemically treated and tested daily, according to a news release. However, other park amenities are not being sanitized, the release states.

The play areas are available at five area parks and do not require a pool pass, except at Sawmill Park. At Sawmill Park, the sprayground is considered part of the pool complex during pool hours and has separate entry requirements.

In addition to spraygrounds, summer activities opening in The Woodlands include several township pools, which will be open noon-6 p.m. daily except for the following days.

  • Alden Bridge Pool: closed Mondays

  • Sawmill Pool: closed Tuesdays

  • Creekwood Pool: closed Thursdays

  • Forestgate Pool: closed Mondays

  • Bear Branch Pool: closed Wednesdays

  • Wendtwoods Pool: closed Wednesdays

  • Harpers Landing Pool: closed Thursdays

The regular pool season ends Aug. 11. Daily pool pass costs have been reduced to $5 for residents and $10 for nonresidents, but season pass prices have not changed, according to information from the township. Season passes for residents age 3-64 are $40.

Pool passes can be obtained by calling The Recreation Center at Rob Fleming Park at 281-516-7348 or The Recreation Center at Bear Branch Park at 281-210-3950, or by emailing recreation@thewoodlandstownship-tx.gov, according to the release.

The Woodlands Township also released its annual summer Action Guide, including a limited assortment of activities, such as camps, aquatic, dance and sports. The activities are subject to change based on COVID-19 regulations, according to township officials.

A running list of facilities that are open or expected to open soon is available on the township website, and township board chambers will remain closed through June 30, according to officials.
