THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS (July 3, 2014) – Shadowbend Pool, located at 4192 Lake Woodlands Drive, in the Village of Cochran’s Crossing, is being renovated as part of the major park renovation approved for 2014. The Woodlands Township had anticipated opening the newly renovated pool in time for Splash Day on July 4, 2014; however, recent rains have delayed final construction elements. It is anticipated that the pool will reopen later this month.
The existing pool building and pool were renovated to be more inviting and fun, and to bring it up to current codes. The building was given a facelift that included needed repairs, and a new roof, new siding, and stone cladding. The restrooms were completely renovated to add capacity and two new accessible restrooms that will be open when the pool is closed. The pool pump equipment was replaced with all new, more efficient equipment, and an inviting stone-clad check-in desk will greet pool guests. New landscaping and a courtyard were also added at the front of the building.
The pool area was upgraded to include three slides, a new pavilion, umbrellas, and a sunning lawn. A new tree-themed splashpad is located adjacent to the pool that will be part of the pool during the pool season but will also be open in the off season through October 31. A crawl-through rain tree is the centerpiece of the splashpad and the only one of its kind. A new playground and swings replace the old play equipment and connect to an expanded stone paved plaza adjacent to the large pavilion.
The tennis area includes additional parking spaces, a new pavilion with serving counter, picnic tables, and a new shortcut sidewalk between the parking area and the bridge.
Upon reopening, the pool will have new operating hours from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, and 1 p.m. – 6 p.m. Sunday. The pool in-service day is Friday.
