Fleming Island is a picturesque community located in Clay County, right on the banks of the St. Johns River. It's just over 25 miles south of Jacksonville, and close to Orange Park and Green Cove Springs. Being nestled slightly inland from the Atlantic coast in a quiet area gives Fleming Island a certain tranquility. Families interested in homes for rent in the greater Jacksonville area but wishing to avoid the commotion of living in the city or just outside it will love Fleming Island.
While this neighborhood is certainly somewhat isolated - surrounded by the river, Swimming Pen Creek, Doctors Lake and Black Creek - Fleming Island has all the amenities residents could possibly desire. Groceries, apparel, banking, health centers, entertainment and shopping are all available on the island itself. It's a close-knit community with beautiful weather and plenty of recreation, and commuters can easily get to Jacksonville for work.
