Amenities At Palencia





The gracious amenities of Palencia are far beyond the ordinary, from championship golf, tennis, swimming and fitness, to sports fields, club facilities and 8 miles of inviting nature trails and boardwalks. If it were not for the enticing beaches and nearby charm of Old St. Augustine, you may never want to leave home.

The Palencia Golf Clubhouse with 33,000 square feet of dining, shopping and banquet facilities, including member's dining room, informal bar and grill overlooking the golf course and a public cafe with outdoor seating that spills onto the Village Green.


The 2,350-acre master-planned community offers a full-spectrum of home sites plus ancillary retail and office opportunities along with more than 33 acres of parks, trails and open areas.
Anchoring the community is a 40-acre Village Center and The Palencia Club, featuring a 33,000 square foot clubhouse and spectacular Arthur Hills-designed championship golf course.

Additionally, there are still a range of home sites available, for those buyers who prefer to design and build their own homes. Developed to be a low density community with an emphasis on preservation, Palencia encompasses 2,325 acres and is expected to include 2,200 homes at build-out. Many estate homesites offer magnificent golf and marsh views.

Because Palencia was designed as a work/live/play community, sidewalks connect each neighborhood to the Town Center which features boutiques and restaurants, along with the fitness center, club and pool. Palencia is in the heart of rapidly developing northern St. Johns County/South Jacksonville that includes Nocatee and World Golf Village.

Residents also enjoy a state-of-the art swim facility, fitness center, and a tennis club with eight lighted Har-Tru tennis courts. Palencia features a 10-acre athletic park with ballfields, basketball courts and a large playground. For those who like to bike, or simply unwind by walking through nature trails and green spaces, the mile-long Tolomato River Boardwalk connects the 30 acre neighborhood park system with Intracoastal island preserves. Residents can fish for tarpon, reds and sea trout from the community maintained dock.
