Howard Park and Gardens

Howard Park splash fountains

Located in the heart of Letchworth, Howard Park and Gardens was created over 100 years ago as a central part of the world’s first garden city.

The park and gardens are divided by a road, Hillshott, with the park’s more formal gardens and bowling green on one side and the more informal Howard Park with paddling pool and play areas, on the other.
