About Davis Park, Fire
Davis Park is the easternmost of the Fire Island residential communities, with a glorious ocean beach and bay surrounded by miles of natural dunes and the Otis Pike Wilderness Area. Swimming, surfing, kayaking, paddleboarding, sailing, clamming, crabbing and surf casting are popular activities.
We are a short boardwalk stroll through the dunes to the FINS Watch Hill facility with its nature walk and Ranger-guided events. Bisected by the Town of Brookhaven Marina, lifeguarded Town beach and Trustees Walk -- home of the Harbor Store and Snackbar, Fire Department, Post Office, Casino Cafe and CasBar (no gambling but great oceanfront dining and dancing) -- the Davis Park area lies to the West and Ocean Ridge area to the East.
Some 270 homes are enjoyed by families and renters from Long Island, the City and Metropolitan Area, with ferries from March through November leaving from Patchogue, a stop on the LIRR. Our boardwalks are for walking -- no bikes here. Our DP Medical Association provides a facility for non-critical care served by volunteer doctors in residence. Our very active Fire Department and community associations, the DPA and Community Recreation, Arts & Beautification (CRAB), as well as other community volunteers, throw a great July 4th parade and bbq, hold plant sales, raffles, swap meets and other community events, including a popular Arts & Crafts Fair, and work on beautification projects throughout the season.
