Davenport Real Estate


Davenport Florida in Polk County, is a quiet, small town neighbor of Disney World, placed just off the beaten path. Situated along US 17, and just east of US 27, Davenport has remained largely unchanged by the impact of world-size tourism just to the north. The rolling hills of the Lake Wales Ridge, stretching south for about 100 miles from this point in northeast Polk, provide an idyllic setting for the town of Davenport. Only two square miles in size, and with a population of less than 2,000, Davenport is nonetheless in the center of a booming residential area. The rapid expansion of the Disney complex just to the north, coupled with thousands of vacant acres of land formerly used for citrus production, have drawn dozens of new subdivisions to the area. The Heart of Florida Hospital recently occupied a new structure just west of Davenport, further stimulating growth in the area. Governed by a commission/ manager form of government, Davenport provides a variety of recreational opportunities to its citizens, including a public swimming pool, four ball fields, two tennis courts and basketball complexes, and two children’s parks with playground equipment. Davenport also offers summer youth recreation and adult sports programs. Davenport has both permanent residence and vacation homes owners because it is close proximity to the attractions.
