All Parks | Community Park | Recreation Centers

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.
