The Palisades Amenities

The Palisades is an award-winning 1,600-acre master-planned community located along ecologically sensitive Lake Wylie in Southwest Charlotte. The 13,400-acre Lake Wylie is Charlotte’s second-largest lake and a popular recreational destination for residents of Charlotte.

The Palisades is like resort-style living every day, only better because you don’t have to get on a plane to fly to some expensive resort thousands or hundreds of miles away. The Palisades literally offers almost any activity within a 5 minute’s drive.

Boating, golfing, fishing, kayaking, soccer, hiking, walking, swimming, gyms, basketball, tennis, cycling to just name a few. Below we have featured some of the places where you can enjoy the outdoors to its fullest. Welcome home.
