Area Description

Cordele-Crisp County offers the best of all worlds. Cordele has all of the "small town" charm you hope to find in a South Georgia community. Comfortable neighborhoods with shade-covered drive, Victorian and Federal style homes, and an active downtown district are only a few of the amenities that make Cordele an ideal place to live.

Cordele has retained its agricultural roots and this important economic sector continues to play a large role on its success today.

As the "Watermelon Capital of the World," Cordele is vibrant during the summer as the watermelon crop is harvested and shipped nationwide.

The community's Watermelon Days Festival is held annually in June and is just another reason to visit the community.

   Lake Blackshear
Tall shady pine trees, large lakes and fishing ponds offer an outdoor landscape that is easily enjoyed in much of Crisp County by stepping our one’s back door.

Most prominent among the recreation areas of the country is the Veterans Memorial State Park, which offers more than 1,322 acres for camping, swimming, fishing, and golfing, and enjoying nature.

Located on Highway 280 between Cordele and Americus, and including the beautiful Lake Blackshear, the park now boasts a convention center, along with a dining and lodging resort, a marina and a championship 18-hole golf course.

In 2000 Cordele and Crisp County developed its recreation department complex complete with a gym, several special activity rooms and two full-size football fields, one of which has been dedicated in honor of long-time Recreation Department Director Cary Cason. This facility is located on North Fifth Street.

Also relatively new is the 78 acre baseball and softball complex at the intersection of Eighth Avenue and Pecan Street. Nine fields currently are in use and plans call for an additional five in the future.

Not only is this facility available for youth league games, bit it also allows tournament play on weekends which produces extra revenue for the county.
