About Davis Park

Davis Park is the easternmost of the Fire Island residential communities, boasting a stunning beach and bay with miles of dunes and the Otis Pike Wilderness Area as its borders.

The community extends along 3/4 of a mile of beachfront, ranging from 330 yards at its widest point to 190 yards wide at its narrowest. Davis Park is surrounded by vast wilderness areas on both sides.

The origins of Davis Park can be traced back to the 1940s, when Mr. Davis from Blue Point owned a tract of land on Fire Island and left it to his sons upon passing away. One of these sons then sold their share to four friends–Lee Coffin, Ed Shembler, Joe Gerard, and Al Brown–which would go on to become Leja Beach, a beachfront named after the first initials of all four founders.

Davis Park is commonly used to refer to three contiguous areas in the hamlet of Davis Park, namely, Davis Park, Leja Beach, and Ocean Ridge. Leja Beach is to the west of Trustees Walk and Ocean Ridge is to the east. There are approximately 270 seasonal homes within Davis Park.

There is one unpaved road, known as the Burma Road. You get around walking on the boardwalks, or along the ocean. Except for emergency, utility, and construction vehicles, there are no cars, bikes, or scooters allowed.

Davis Park has one of Fire Island’s largest marinas, which can accommodate up to 250 boats.

A lifeguarded section of beach is also available, as are public restrooms and showers.

You can find a number of community activities throughout the year such as the annual Arts & Crafts fair and 4th of July parade.

Overlooking the ocean is the Casino Cafe which houses a restaurant, a grill, and a bar. While there is no gambling at the Casino, there is a lot of entertainment and dancing.

There is a Parish which operates weekends in the summer months.

A Police and Fire Department are located on the main walk.

And there is even the cutest United States Post Office on the main walk (open July and August only).
