Overview of Palencia

Additionally, there is still a range of homesites available, for those buyers who prefer to design and build their own homes. 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.

Palencia Amenities

In the heart of Palencia is the Town Center, which is a 33,000 square-foot clubhouse offering a variety of dining options. Amenities include The Palencia Club, with a par-72 private golf course designed by Arthur Hill. The spectacular layout of this course winds through a landscape of live oaks, palms, and open marshes with Intracoastal views from some holes.

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.
