While there is no parking here, this secluded park offers a planted trail that leads to the beach, but that starts between two private driveways, so please be respectful. It leads down through the woods to a beach lawn. It is reached by a tiny, residential access road with no parking, but offers public shore access, benches, and great big trees.

Acreage: 0.9


The name came about because the park is at the foot of Howell Street, which is named in memory of Captain Jefferson D. Howell, brother-in-law of Jefferson Davis, President of Confederate States (1861-1865).
