Howell Community Park
114.36 Acres - 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. It is one of BREC's busiest parks, due in large part to the number of facilities available.
Large sections of this park are currently under construction as part of the Imagine Your Parks 2 strategic plan.

Upcoming Programs & Events
Geaux Fish Catfish Rodeo
Grab your fishing pole and head out with the family to GEAUX Fish! Our Geaux Fish Rodeos are a great opportunity to introduce new anglers to the sport of fishing or for the old veteran to test their skills. We will be stocking the pond with adult channel catfish to ensure you have plenty to catch and prizes galore. Don’t miss this chance to bring home channel catfish for dinner and spend the day outside with the family. This event is weather dependent. Space will be limited for this event; so early registration is required for this event. (WebTrac CFISHRODEO)
