Review of Orange Park, Florida

A Great Place to Live - tucked away yet near the b
Star Rating - 11/22/2009
We live on Fleming Island, zip 32003, in the Orange Park area of Clay County. Fleming Island's two Master Planned Communities, Eagle Harbor and Fleming Island Plantation, have given much to this area. We have some of the top schools in Florida - Fleming Island High is ranked #13 this year and Fleming Island Elementary has been as high as #4 in past years. We have shopping and restaurants nearby, schools in our neighborhoods, and miles of sidewalks for jogging, biking and walking. We are surrounded by water, so there are plenty of places to store and launch your boat. Eagle Harbor has one of the best tennis programs in the state, and Clay County Soccer Club is excellent.

We are tucked away on this little island, yet near everything the big city has to offer. We moved back here from Orlando because we really like the quality of life in the Jacksonville area, plus we like the climate better. We have enough 'cold' weather to actually be able to have a fire in the fireplace and not turn on the air conditioning :)

Fleming Island was named an official postal town by the US Post Office in 2007. We are no longer 'Orange Park FL' but Fleming Island FL 32003. Check us out, it's a great place to live.
