On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me – FOUR amazing activities at Palencia!

For those that want to be at the center of the action with close proximity to I-95, historic Saint Augustine, and the Southside of Jacksonville, Palencia might just be the neighborhood for you.

Sure, we know that Palencia St. Augustine is in a great location, but what about the features of the neighborhood? Our four favorite activities include the fitness center, tennis, swimming and the golf club.

The Palencia Golf Clubhouse features 33,000 square feet of dining, shopping and banquet facilities, including a member’s dining room, informal bar and grill overlooking the golf course and a public café with outdoor seating for those lovely spring months in Florida. The club features a 72-par, 18-hole Championship Arthur Hills Golf Course and a full-service golf pro shop for the avid golfer in the family!

Now if golf isn’t your bag, Palencia didn’t leave out the tennis players! The neighborhood features ten lighted hydro-grid clay tennis courts, private tennis instruction offered by the professional staff and over 20 different tennis teams for the athlete looking for a little competition.

When it comes to fitness, Palencia doesn’t disappoint there either. If you prefer to play sports for exercise, enjoy the three baseball diamonds, the children’s pirate playground and a family picnic pavilion. For the runner or walker, there are eight miles of multi-use paths including raised boardwalks that connect the neighborhoods between the scenic marshes and river’s edge. If the good old fashioned gym is your favorite way to break a sweat, enjoy the state-of-the-art fitness facility full of cardio and strength training equipment. The fitness center also offers a variety classes for those looking for a more interactive experience.

For those warm summer months, enjoy the four swimming pools at Palencia! One includes a water tower and two-story slide for the kids while the other has eight traditional lanes that the Palencia Pirahnha Swim Team calls home.

In addition to these four great amenities, Palencia boasts 300 acres of conservation areas, a nationally recognized school district, and plenty of floorplans for every family size and budget. This holiday season give yourself the gift of life in Palencia!
