The Woodlands is a master-planned community and a Census-designated place in the U.S. state of Texas within the Houston–Sugar Land–Baytown metropolitan area. The population of the CDP was 55,649 at the 2000 census—a 90 percent increase over its 1990 population. According to the 2010 census, The Woodlands’ population rose by 68.6% to 93,847 in 2010. Much of The Woodlands is located in the city of Houston’s extraterritorial jurisdiction, but small portions of the development extend into the ETJ of Shenandoah and Conroe. Agreements with these cities will allow future incorporation of The Woodlands as an independent city as early as 2014.
The Woodlands continues to grow residentially and commercially as many companies are moving to The Woodlands.
The Woodlands offers many entertainment venues including two movie theaters, over 150 restaurants, a publicly accessible waterway, and dancing waterfalls with music. Also featured is the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, summer home of the Houston Symphony and catering to many large acts (rock bands to classical). The Woodlands Waterway will eventually be more than 1/2 mile long, reaching from The Woodlands Mall around to Lake Woodlands and featuring wide, lighted sidewalks along both sides and Waterway Taxis. Additional attractions include Market Street, an old style “Main Street” pedestrian shopping district, home to a movie theater and a variety of shops and restaurants.
Most students in the Montgomery County-portion of The Woodlands attend schools in the Conroe Independent School District. Most schools in The Woodlands have the honored rank of an exemplary school, the highest possible school ranking in Texas.
