This park is located in the mid-west part of East Baton Rouge Parish. Howell Community Park serves a larger geographic area than a neighborhood park and is designed to engage the entire family for a whole day. Higher levels of maintenance, security, and recreational opportunities are offered at community parks.This is one of BREC's oldest parks.

Community Playground

The large playground is a space-themed playground complete with a rocket-ship climbing aparatus. Kids love it! Parents can relax while watch the kids play or get in the fun themselves, all beneath shade sails. With the renovation of the park in the Imagine Your Parks 2 strategic plan, an adventure playground featuring a playground zipline was also added.
