Beautiful Drexel Park is home to the annual Azalea Festival, an event that draws hundreds of vendors & thousands of visitors every March. A Century Bike Ride, a 5K & a 1-mile fun run accompany the festival each year.
The festival is a free event that features arts & crafts vendors, a food court, & a huge kids zone full of activities. Bands perform throughout the weekend event, providing a backdrop of music as you meander through the activities among the blooming azaleas.
Drexel Park is one of VLPRA's most used parks. It is about 11 acres & offers ample shaded green space. It is conveniently located by VSU & features a creek with a picturesque bridge & a large variety of indigenous plant life with tree species labled throughout the park. It is bordered by the Azalea City Multipurpose Trail. Children love to play on the large play structure with bridges, monkey bars, & slides as well as the swing sets. The park is outfitted with electricity & is available for rent.
