Lowe Square was notified as a reserve on 24 December 1861. Mr Lowe donated the land to the authorities for a sports area. The original Howlong Golf Course was located on this site. The course was laid out in 1928 with the first tee in the north east corner and a fairway past the football ground to a sandscape in the south east corner.
Today, Lowe Square is the town's sporting and recreation hub. In the cooler months, get front row seats and watch the local football and netball teams take on their neighbouring competitors. During summer, why not have a game of cricket or visit the town's swimming pool. All year round you can enjoy the local pony club, BMX park and tennis courts, and there's plenty of space to spread out and enjoy a picnic. The skate park is a huge hit with all the locals, providing hours of entertainment for families all year round.
A permanent public outdoor ping pong table has found itself fixed in the heart of Howlong for visitors' enjoyment. The fully welded steel weather-proof table was provided by Federation Youth Council and was funded through the Youth Opportunities Program 2018.
For those travelling through town, the local dump point is also located within the Lowe Square Reserve.
