Located along the banks of The Woodlands Waterway between The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion and the South Montgomery County Library, Town Green Park is the downtown central park of The Woodlands Tx.

The four-acre green space features a main lawn nearly two football fields long, an entertainment stage area with natural seating, a children's literary labyrinth with life-size Aesop fables, and a children's amphitheater perfect for group outings.

The Park is open to the public daily. Hours of operation are:
Sunday through Thursday: Dawn to 11:00pm
Friday and Saturday: Dawn to Midnight

The 100th park in The Woodlands, Town Green Park, now serves as a special community-gathering place. The elements of the park set it apart from other area parks, beginning with the entrance. Every great park has a dramatic entrance and Town Green Park is no exception. Two impressive, 18.5-foot columns, each topped with a five-foot, stylized pinecone, welcome guests to Town Green Park. Decorative brick columns form a border on each side of these grand columns. As visitors walk through the entrance to Town Green Park, they have a clear view of the park's central gathering spot, The Great Lawn, which extends all the way down to The Woodlands Waterway. Just inside the entrance, visitors can take a seat along a trellis-like covered area with vines providing intermittent shade.

Almost two football fields long and covered with lush Bermuda grass, the ""free-play"" space of The Great Lawn is a great spot to toss a Frisbee, fly a kite, enjoy a picnic or just lay in the sun.

The Great Lawn stretches from the park's entrance to a fenced area just north of The Woodlands Waterway. The Children's Garden at Town Green Park incorporates landscape design elements with fun literary experiences to complement the neighboring South Montgomery County Library. Children can let their imagination run wild, literally, through a natural labyrinth of 36-inch hedges.
As they weave through this natural maze, children encounter large storybooks with contemporary updates from Aesop's Fables, thereby making The Children's Garden a truly literature-friendly experience.

The east border of the park features a walkway with several comfortable nooks with circular bench seating. The east side of the park provides a passive shaded area utilizing the existing tree canopy along The Pavilion's walkway and also contains over 50 types of perennial vegetation. An inspiring and thought-provoking sculpture titled ""With Hope"" featuring a pair of hands releasing doves into the air is the focal point of a quiet spot on the north side of the park.

Town Green Park provides a destination for Town Center visitors, as well as a venue for special events taking place in Town Center such as the Lighting of the Doves and Red, Hot and Blue Festivals.

A Water Taxi stop has also been added for convenient access from The Woodlands Waterway. Town Center Improvement District and The Woodlands Development Company had the vision to complete a ""downtown central park"" in Town Center.

The Woodlands Development Company donated the site for the park and supervised design and construction, while TCID funded the $3.5 million initiative. Miner-Dederick Constructors, Inc. served as the park contractor and the Houston office of SWA Group created the landscape architecture.
