Wide Outreach

We serve the area of South Ponte Vedra down to St. Augustine Inlet! Much of the area is incredibly scenic, with large beaches and a local wildlife preserve.

Over the years NSIA has been successful in representing our community to county and state officials and we have developed many projects to benefit the community. For example, the community center and firehouse were both built by the Association itself!

Recreational Spaces

The community center offers yoga, pilates, and art programs. It's also available as a rental space for events! The firehouse also serves as a rental space, and we would love to see you host your gatherings with us!

We have lovely community garden plots available to rent.

Additionally, members can enjoy our amenities including a recreational field, sports courts, and a dog park.

We are excited to announce that our tennis and pickle ball courts are being resurfaced and the fencing around the courts will be replaced. The courts should be completed and ready to use by the end of October. Thank you for your patience. For your safety, please stay away from the area until it is completed. Thank you to St. John’s County for improving the courts for our community.
