Davis Islands is truly one of the most unique communities in South Tampa. The Islands neighborhood is right outside downtown Tampa and offers residents and guests a variety of outdoor activities, local shops/eateries and community events to experience.

Davis Islands was created in the 1920’s by developer and Tampa native D.P. Davis from two small natural islands formerly known as Little Grassy Key and Big Grassy Key at the mouth of the Hillsborough River. The land was built up from mud dredged from the bottom of Tampa Bay and expanded.

Today Davis Islands is a mix of beautiful residential and retail areas all encompassed by parks, green-space and stunning water views. Davis Islands is the home to Peter O. Knight Airport, Davis Islands Yacht Club, Tampa General Hospital, Sandra Freedman Tennis Complex and the Roy Jenkins aquatic center. Also on the Islands are the Marjorie Park and Marjorie Park Municipal Yacht Basin. Marjorie Park was donated to the City of Tampa and named by Davis after his wife Marjorie Merritt Davis.

With a canal fully separating a portion of the island from the rest of it, Davis Islands is technically an archipelago, hence the plural form Islands in its name. Originally, Davis Islands consisted of three islands. However with the construction of the airport, the end of one canal was filled in to make enough land area for a runway, connecting the two largest islands at their southern ends, thus reducing the archipelago's island count to two.
