The City of Brookings and its unincorporated areas make up 39% of the population of Curry County, Oregon. Azalea Park is the largest of the community parks and hosts several events through out the year at little or no cost to those who attend. These events include summer concerts, movie nights, community picnics and the Festival of Lights. Access to the park was underdeveloped creating a lack of general parking and ADA accessibility for cars and public transit.
Nature’s Coastal Holiday and the City of Brookings came together to re-imagine entry to Azalea Park. The City of Brookings provided the project management and $280,000 in funds. Nature’s Coastal Holiday spear-heading community donations with a $50,000 pledge. Our pledged amount was delivered to the City of Brookings in April 2020 and the parking lot was completed in May 2020.
