Ladera Ranch is an affluent master-planned community and census-designated place located in south Orange County, California just outside the city limits of San Juan Capistrano, Rancho Santa Margarita and Mission Viejo.

The Ladera Ranch development is divided into nine “villages”. Within each village, individual builders develop an area called a neighborhood. There are ten or more neighborhoods per village. The villages are:

  • Oak Knoll Village

  • Bridgepark

  • Flintridge Village

  • Township

  • Wycliffe Village

  • Echo Ridge Village

  • Avendale Villages

  • Terramor Village

  • Covenant Hills

Five of the nine villages have clubhouses themed on a particular architecture style that is emphasized within that village. There are also parks, pools, playgrounds and open areas within each village. The Covenant Hills village is a gated community which is closed to the general public, but accessible to all card-carrying residents of Ladera Ranch. There are no other gated villages in the community.

In addition to the various clubhouses, the community has a private water park and skate park, 18 community parks, a dog park, six smaller neighborhood pools, many pocket parks and green belts, shopping districts called Mercantile East and Mercantile West Shopping Centers, and miles of hiking/biking trails that connect to Doheny Beach.

VIEW MORE FACTS

Ladera Ranch is a 4,000 acres (16 km2) planned community adjacent to Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, and San Juan Capistrano. Located along Antonio Parkway and Crown Valley Parkway, construction of the community began in 1999 on portions of the O’Neill, Avery, & Moiso families’ 23,000 acres (93 km2) Rancho Mission Viejo cattle ranch, which was the largest remaining working ranch in Orange County.

Ladera Ranch is located in the foothills of the Orange County Saddleback.

As a part of unincorporated Orange County, Ladera Ranch is governed by the Orange County Board of Supervisors as part of the Fifth District.

Community Organizations

The Ladera Ranch Maintenance Corporation (LARMAC) is the homeowners association formed to manage, maintain and govern the LARMAC Property. LARMAC enforces its Governing Documents and imposes architectural control in the community. Each homeowner in the community is a Member of LARMAC. The LARMAC board of directors oversees its operations. Day-to-day activities are performed by the general manager and supervised by the LARMAC Board. Two essential committees assist the board of directors in overseeing its operations; the Aesthetic Review Committee, which has jurisdiction over design, development, aesthetics and the character of the community, and the Covenant Committee, which enforces the use restrictions of the community in accordance with the Governing Documents.

Ladera Ranch Community Services (LARCS) is an independent non-profit public benefit corporation (Community Services Organization) led by an elected five member board of directors. LARCS primary purpose is to enhance the lifestyle for the residents of Ladera Ranch through community and neighborhood events, recreational programs, resident led clubs and community groups, coordination of volunteer opportunities and resident communication which includes the management of the community website, LaderaLife.com, and the production of the quarterly news magazine, Roots & Wings. Jay Rogers currently serves as the Board President.

The Ladera Ranch Civic Council (LRCC) is a volunteer group that advises the Orange County Board of Supervisors. The council has no official municipal role or legal authority. The seven-member Civic Council board of directors focuses on topics within Ladera Ranch that are traditionally associated with a municipal body, such as planning and land use, public safety and infrastructure.

Ladera-Rancho Chamber of Commerce is currently working in partnership with LARCS to promote business awareness within the community through community events.

The community sponsors the annual Fourth of July Celebration which starts with a 10k / 5k race and then a community parade. In the afternoon the park is set up like a carnival with arts and crafts, activities, inflatables and baking contests. Later in the afternoon a band plays on stage until dark when a 30-minute choreographed fireworks display closes the day.

In addition to their signature Fourth of July event they hold a Summer Concert series, Family Campout, Movie night in the park, Spring and Fall Festivals, National Night Out, Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony and Santa visit, Bark, Biscuits and Brew event for our 4 legged friends as well as partnership events with local charities and vendors.

There are plenty of activities for youth of all ages as the community is well represented by AYSO, Ladera Football League, Little League Baseball, Lacrosse, NJB Basketball, Gators Swim Team, Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, Venturing, and YMCA Adventure Guides. The community also has a Teen Leadership Council which is composed of 25 youth between 7th and 12th Grades who assist with programming and activities for community youth.

The community is served by the Capistrano Unified School District. A branch of the Orange County Public Library is also located on the campus of Ladera Ranch School.

Within the community are the Chaparral and Oso Grande Elementary Schools and the Ladera Ranch School, which is home to both an elementary school and a middle school on the same campus.

Chaparral Elementary School received the “California Distinguished School Award” in both 2004 and 2008. Ladera Ranch School opened in 2004, and the Middle School received the “California Distinguished School Award” in 2007 and has been nominated again in 2011.

Depending on which part of the community they live in, high school students attend either San Juan Hills High School in San Juan Capistrano, or Tesoro High School in Las Flores. Prior to its opening in 2007, students in areas currently served by San Juan Hills attended Capistrano Valley High School. A number of Ladera Ranch’s students still attend Capistrano Valley, either due to having begun attendance prior to 2007, or by virtue of having been “grandfathered” in through siblings’ attendance.

Private schools within a short distance to Ladera Ranch are Santa Margarita Catholic High School, J. Serra Catholic School and St. Margaret’s Academy.

The community is close to Saddleback College in Mission Viejo, California and Soka University of America in Aliso Viejo, California.

Law enforcement services in Ladera Ranch are provided by the Orange County Sheriff’s Department and the California Highway Patrol.
