Parc Howard is 24 acres of parkland, north of the town centre of Llanelli in Carmarthenshire. Once owed by the Howard family, it was gifted to Llanelli in 1912 and still to this day continues to be embraced and enjoyed by the tens of thousands who visit the parkland every year.
There is loads of grassy areas for kids to play, as well as a duck pond, picnic areas, bowling green, tennis courts and children’s playground area. This is also where the Parc Howard Museum is located and where families can enjoy free Family Fun Days that are held annually by the Parc Howard Association.
Parc Howard Museum and Art Gallery is in a 19th-century Italianate country house, which was part of the original Stepney estate which surrounded Llanelli. On the western side of the site, a Gorsedd Circle marks the area where druids celebrate the Gorsedd ceremony to mark the National Eisteddfod, which was held in Llanelli in 1962.
Parc Howard Museum and Art Gallery is best known for its large and representative collection of the locally-made Llanelly Pottery (1839–1920), gifted in 1933 by Lady Howard. It also houses paintings, portraits and other art works and displays artefacts relating to the local area, its history and culture.
