Welcome to Shadybrook!

Shadybrook is a gated residential community on the southeastern shore of Lake Palestine in northern Cherokee County, where spectacular sunsets are renowned. Lake Palestine is a 26,000 acre lake providing many amenities such as fishing, sailing and water sports.  It is located 20 miles southwest of Tyler , the medical center for East Texas .   Dallas is 110 miles to the west and Houston 170 miles to the south. Shadybrook is divided by HWY 346 into an east and west section.  There are 1967 homeowners/lot owners at this time.

Shadybrook offers restricted subdivisions for built-on-site residential homes, separate manufactured homes or camper lots.  Subdivision maps can be purchased from the Property Owners’ office, which is located just inside the front gate.  They are willing to answer any questions or give needed assistance.



Our local VFD is raising funds for equipment to help them do their job. 

Going door-to-door, community members can purchase a $30.00 ticket for a 11x14 family photographic portraits from a VFD volunteer. A portion of the funds will go towards purchasing the needed fire equipment.

The portraits will be taken at the local Fire Hall 14 March 2015, between 10:00 AM and 6:00 PM. Further photo sheets may be purchased from the photographer.

Please, support our VFD members that give their priceless time and effort to make our community safe.
