The Howland Community Park District was created in April of 1984 to replace the Howland Township Joint Recreation Board which had existed since 1976. The Howland Park District is a seperate political entity from Howland Township and is managed by Park Commissioners.  The District's three commissioners are appointed by the Trumbull County Probate Court to staggered three-year Bolindale Shelterterms. The commissioners supervise the Bolindale-DeForest Park, Morgandale Playground, the 172 acre Howland Township Park, and the 200+ acres of Howland Trustee's Wildlife Preserve.

The Park District maintains four pavilions, eight soccer fields, four playgrounds, four tennis courts, a bocce court, six pickle ball courts, two corn hole courts, four ball fields, horseshoe pits, hiking trails, sand volleyball court, and a lake. These facilities are provided for the recreational use of all Howland Community residents.
