“Waterway Square provides a wonderful family-friendly setting for events like this and we invite families from around the region to come experience what The Woodlands has to offer this Labor Day weekend,” says Nick Wolda, president of The Woodlands Convention & Visitors Bureau.
The Labor Day Weekend celebration is open to the public thanks to the generous sponsors: The Woodlands Development Company, Kyle Sherburne – State Farm Insurance, St. Luke’s The Woodlands Hospital, University of Phoenix, Kroger, The Woodlands Resort and Bud Light.
Waterway Square, located along Lake Robbins Drive between Waterway Avenue and Woodloch Forest Drive, features a 120-foot long, 10-foot high stone water wall where ribbons of water flow down seven terraced levels to a lower pond with 20 cascade jets. The water wall is flanked by stairs and stepped water cascades, all leading to an upper fountain containing 80 jets and three boomer jets that shoot water up to 75 feet high. The water jets, waterfalls and cascades are designed to create a variety of displays and effects ranging from the subtle flow of water over a stone wall to dancing columns of water, to intense bursts of water shooting several stories into the air. Waterway Square features seven speakers on the upper level and 12 speakers on the lower level.
