Brookings is in the county seat of Curry County, Oregon. It is on the southern edge of Oregon and is only six miles north of the California border. Brookings has the warmest average temperatures on the Oregon coastline. It holds heritage in timber, azaleas, and fishing. Brookings is known as the city “where the flowers meet the sea”.
In 1906 a graduate in civil engineering and forestry visited the area and determined that Brookings should begin lumbering operations. It was soon after that, when the town built a mill and shipping center for timber.
The 2010 census population was 6,336 people and 2,717 households in Brookings. The median age of the population was 46.9 years with 47.7% males and 52.3% females.
Brookings hosts the Azalea Festival every year on Memorial Day weekend where residents and visitors experience the annual Azalea Parade, Azalea Street Fair, shrimp feed, and other fun-filled weekend activities.
Azalea Park is nestled in a residential neighborhood. Guests admire azaleas of all colors along 33 acres of land and a natural amphitheater. The Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park falls along Highway 199 and boasts gigantic redwoods, camping, and hiking trails galore! Visitors walk among the giants and explore amid the famous redwoods.
