Fleming Island is an unincorporated community in Clay County, Florida, United States. It is located 15 miles southwest of Jacksonville, on the western side of the St. Johns River, off US 17. Fleming Island’s zip code became 32003 in 2004, giving it a different code than Orange Park. It is not an island, but a former wetland area developed into several golf courses and suburbs. In 1942, when the area was undeveloped, the U.S. Navy constructed four asphalt runways on the site and established a Naval Outlying Field designated as NOLF Fleming Island, an auxiliary airfield to Naval Air Station Jacksonville. The Navy abandoned the auxiliary airfield in the 1960s, its runways too short to accommodate the jet aircraft then in operation at nearby NAS Jacksonville and NAS Cecil Field, and in the late 1990s the decaying runways were demolished to make way for current residential-centric development.
Today, Fleming Island is primarily a bedroom community of nearby Jacksonville. Major developments include Eagle Harbor, Pace Island and Fleming Island Plantation and many more. The only high school located on Fleming Island is Fleming Island High School, which was opened in 2003.
Fleming Island ranks among the richest zip codes in the Jacksonville area, with an average household income of $104,254 and average net worth of $959,951. 32003 zip code placed #2 after Ponte Vedra Beach in the March 2013 Jacksonville Business Journal article. Fleming Island has its own Carmike Cinema 12, Wal Mart, Target, Home Depot, Kohl’s, Publix, Winn-Dixie, Michael’s, PetSmart and many other types of businesses. The Clay County Public Library Headquarters is on Fleming Island, as are the Clay County Soccer Fields. There is an 8′ wide sidewalk running the length of Fleming Island, providing about 7 miles of walking, jogging and biking. Black Creek Park on the South end of the Fleming Island borders Black Creek and affords bikers and hikers nature trails. On the North end of Fleming Island, Moccasin Slough just opened a park for children on Westover Road just off Highway 17.
Nature lovers can visit Moccasin Slough. The Pace family-owned Moccasin Slough at one time and dug a canal almost all the way to Doctors Lake. Area residents can enjoy the benefits of their labor, as it is still navigable among the swampy portions by canoe or small boat.
The population of Fleming Island is 28,350, with over 9,800 households scattered around the Island. The median house value is $260,815 and the median age is 40.40, according to zip-code.com. The elevation is 28 feet above sea level. There are many options for housing, including apartments, condominiums, townhouses, patio homes and single family homes. There are homes for first time homebuyers, empty nesters, and luxury homes in estate neighborhoods and on the water.
Fleming Island is bordered by water or wetlands on all sides – St. John’s River to the East, Doctor’s Lake to the North, Black Creek to the South and Swimming Pen Creek to the West. There are wetlands from Swimming Pen Creek to Black Creek that are not navigable. Some locals favor opening this to Black Creek but so far, the St. Johns Water Management District has not pursued the idea of doing this.
