The Plantation - The Perfect Place To Raise A Family
Did you know over 175 school aged children currently live in The Plantation? Yes, we're the perfect place to raise a family! Inside the gates, life for our kids is great, riding their bikes around the 650 acres, skateboarding to the basketball court and Plantation Commons and parents never worry. Our children have become outstanding golfers. We have budding tennis players too, who have developed some wicked serves and backhands with topspin. 

Over the past five years we've seen more families than ever choose The Plantation for a variety of reasons. 

#1 The Best Education: St. Johns County Schools are ranked #1 in the state of Florida. Public schools, Ocean Palms Elementary and Landrum Middle School are both situated a mile outside of The Plantation's back entrance gate and Ponte Vedra High School is less than five miles away. In addition there are a number of acclaimed private schools in the area. Public schools buses pick up and drop off Plantation residents daily in The Plantation. 

#2 Safety: Being a gated community with top notch security, parents can feel at ease knowing their children can enjoy the neighborhood with their friends. 

#3 Organized Sports: Our Golf, Tennis and Fitness Directors all provide lessons, events and clinics specifically geared for kids of all ages. We've had two year olds with a tennis racket in hand and also play host to The Ponte Vedra High School Sharks Golf team who has won several state titles. The Plantation Commons offers a new playground and an open field for ball games. 

#4 Convenience: Many moms and dads find themselves going the day without leaving The Plantation. Grocery stores and shopping are close. Plus, a commute to Jacksonville is manageable unlike other large cities.

Kids Have A Voice

To enhance our children's programming, we have a Junior Advisory Board. The Junior Advisory Board is made up of children from all different age groups and interests, working together to enhance The Plantation lifestyle, from choosing the crafts at our Holiday Extravaganza to planning summer camp activities. Some of our member-favorites include Santa Brunch (with a special visit from Santa & Mrs. Claus), the Halloween Haunted House, monthly movie nights, and summer camps for all ages.
