North Shores Improvement Association (NSIA)

a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization serving the North Shores communities since 1939

We Are Here For You!

Serving our community and ensuring all its members have access to public resources is something we've always been passionate about! We upkeep a public community center and park, in addition to regularly hosting a variety of classes and events. There is a place for you here, so consider looking at what we have to offer!

Mural, Mingle & More

Thank you to the more than 100 members of the community that came out to celebrate the renovations and enhancements made to the NSIA Community Center, firehouse and athletic courts. We welcomed new friends, recognized those that have worked hard for the community and kindled enthusiasm for more fun to come.

We are celebrated the wonderful Mural titled 'All Things Vilano' painted by our local artist Fran Windeler. We also showcased our newly renovated community center, firehouse, tennis courts and pickle ball courts.

A huge thank you to the Reef Restaurant who provided wonderful appetizers. There will be great food, drinks, and music.

Look for more mingle opportunities in the future. If you have suggestions for community activities, please share with us at

We are also looking for volunteers to help with many events - there is something for everyone from art and culture, environmental, recreation, community outreach - you tell us what you want to do!

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 February. 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.
