Howitt Park

East Bairnsdale

Howitt Park is a park for enjoyment and sport and caters for all ages. For the younger children it has an adventure park and during the summer months Little Athletics take place on its athletics oval. Football is played on the main oval with male and female junior and senior competitions taking place. Rowing is another feature of the park’s sporting bodies with regular social rowing. A softball back-net allows practice on the main oval for the local Softball Association to use. The clubrooms, with all the usual facilities, allow community groups to meet and are used by all the user groups that make up the management committee.
