History

Image: weblinkGluckauf "The Wreck" 1893

It all began back in 1945 when Davis Park became official, with the town (TOB) establishing the marina and a public park. The land for both was donated by the Davis Brothers of Patchogue.
A large building was barged over from the South Shore and with some work was soon operating as the bar, 'The Leja Beach Casino'. Houses stated sprouting on the western edge, in the early 1960’s and then spread east. The latter formation of homes would garner their own identify in time, calling itself Ocean Ridge.

Davis Park simply put, is down-to-earth. There is no jet-set scene, no best-dressed list to follow. It welcomes all who enjoy soaking their skin, swimming in the cooling ocean. Friendly Davis Park affords its virtues to all.
