Find a friendly small town with a rich history when you search Orange Park homes. The town was once a thriving citrus growing area. Today, it’s a wonderful place to live and work. Jacksonville is about 20 miles north, making Orange Park real estate a great choice for commuters. However, Orange Park and Clay County are working hard, along with the Clay County Chamber of Commerce, to attract businesses into the area and provide support so they can grow.
Orange Park homes have many attractions for people moving into the area. Housing is quite affordable, whether you’re looking at new construction or an established house. The public schools in town are also very strong, providing good academics, extracurricular activities, and sports. The private schools in Orange Park are also well-reviewed by parents and students.
