Fleming Island is located in the Central Eastern part of Clay County just south of the Town of Orange Park. It is an actual Island surrounded by Doctor's Lake to the North and West, Black Creek to the South, and the St. John's River to the East. Fleming Island has an older side and a newer side.
The older side is on the eastern part of the island and is made of single family homes and communities from the 80's time frame. Most have larger lots and less community restrictions.
The rest of the island has PUD developed (Planned Urban Developments). These developments have many amenities and some even have schools within the communities. There is all the retail stores and restaurants you need located on County Road 220 which runs through the center of the communities. You are able to purchase New Construction or Re-Sale homes. There are single family detached, townhomes, condos, Riverfront, Golf Course, and waterfront homes available for purchase. The schools are all self contained on Fleming Island which means you must live on Fleming Island to have your child attend the school there. The schools are A rated. The area would be considered a suburban area; very family oriented.
