William Howe Regional Park provides informal recreation opportunities including walking, picnicking, on-leash dog walking and cycling. A lookout in the park gives visitors panoramic views. According to some Aboriginal descendants, the hills were used by Aboriginal people as lookouts, for communication and for large gatherings.

Together with the adjoining Gundungurra Reserve, the park’s grassland areas preserve a cultural landscape of the European colonial period.

The native vegetation that is present within the park includes a small pocket of critically endangered Cumberland Plain Woodland and provides habitat for many native plants and animals. Habitat values are, and will continue to be, enhanced by the park’s location within the Narellan and Spring Farm Bush Corridor. This corridor links the Nepean River to the Australian Botanic Garden via various reserves, providing an important biodiversity link across an increasingly urbanised landscape.
