St. Augustine Shores
In the late 1960's, early 1970's, Frank and Robert Mackle planned a community to be called The St. Augustine Shores. The Mackle brothers formed the Deltona Corporation to develop and manage the community located 4.5 miles south of St. Augustine, Florida, the "oldest permanent settlement in North America."
The Deltona Corporation started clearing 2020 acres of land for development, leaving many beautiful native Florida trees to add character to the community. As part of the community's plan, several parcels of land were dedicated for recreation, education, and worship facilities.
The Shores has 58 acres set aside for the development of parks and 45 acres designated for recreational sites on the Inter-coastal Waterway. A 12,000 sq ft recreation building, "The Riverview" is located on the waterway. Bridge, yoga, dance classes and Mah Jong are just a few of the organized social clubs at the Riverview.
The Riverview has an Olympic sized swimming pool, a large jungle gym, picnic area, horseshoe pits, volleyball, and sports field. The Riverview Facility houses a 5500 square foot ballroom, a game room, a card room, a library, and kitchen facilities available for rental. There is also a 500 foot pier with gazebo, that extends into the Inter-coastal Waterway and provides an exceptional opportunity for anglers, wildlife observers, and sunrise/sunset seekers who reside in the St. Augustine Shores. For golfers, there is the St. Augustine Shores Golf Club, a private 18 hole, par 70 course for the veteran and novice golfer.
Today many Shores residents enjoy walking, biking, or jogging along the more than 150 miles of bike paths, sidewalks, and 14 lakes/ponds.
The designated schools for this neighborhood are Douglas Hartley Elementary, an award winning school in St. Johns County, Gamble Rogers Middle School and Pedro Menendez High School. You can click on the schools for more information.
