Welcome to the Friendly City
From our small town roots in 1974, the City of Petal was born. Now a busy south Mississippi town of over 10,000 is set to grow even more as development has continued in all economic sectors. From our downtown boutiques to the Evelyn Gandy Parkway, Petal embodies its Friendly City slogan.
Located on the Leaf River and less than 2 hours from the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Petal is ideally situated and a true hidden gem. From our award-winning Petal School District, to the countless recreational opportunities, you can always find something to do in Petal!
So, to those that call Petal home, and to those looking for a great place to live, I invite you to experience all that Petal has to offer.
