Airlie Road in Wilmington, NC is one of the most scenic and highly sought after neighborhoods in which to live. Majestic trees line Airlie Road and Summer Rest Road, an area that has some of the best properties for sale in all of Wilmington. Airlie Gardens, a beautiful 67-acre private park off of Wilmington’s Airlie Road hosts many weddings, private parties, and the Azalea Festivals Garden party. The ‘Garden Party’ is one of Wilmington’s most storied traditions, and takes place there every April. This low-lying piece of land is a part of Wilmington history and exquisitely displays over 100,000 azalea bushes, a 10-acre lake, butterfly houses, and a small chapel. The tranquility and timelessness of this beautiful oak tree lined park over looking Bradley Creek is like no other in the region and a contributing factor to high real estate prices in the Airlie Road area. The Pembroke Jones family originally registered Airlie Gardens as a Park in 1901.
