Hawes Park is a 2.5 acre park located on a corner lot opposite the Dr. Ralph E. Hawes Elementary School  (714) 963-8302. Situated in a quiet residential neighborhood, the park's green lawns stretch to the school, providing large playing areas perfect for soccer and ball games. Several playgrounds include swings and play stations with ladders, slides and climbing apparatus. Ideal for tots and kids, they overlook the huge fields and park in the heart of a residential area bounded by major streets Adams, Brookhurst, Indianapolis and Bushard.

Hawes Elementary School has been used as a practice field for AYSO youth soccer. Below is a list of fields that have been used for practice.

Huntington Beach Parks

The City of Huntington Beach (California) is the caretaker and steward of the Huntington Beach public park system. Two departments involved with Huntington Beach parks are the Community Services Department and Park Maintenance. Park Maintenance is responsible for maintaining approximately 67 parks and public facilities, totaling 598 acres, 169 playground apparatus and irrigation systems. 

Park Maintenance is also an integral component in special events in the City, closely working with Community Services to set up for events and activities that take place on or near park facilities. Community Services not only handles the rental of the park facilities but also operates programs for the public that include softball leagues, exercise classes, cooking, dancing and other types of interesting and fun things to do.
