Everything about Ladera Ranch speaks to the idea of connection, real or virtual. At this Orange County enclave, a part of Rancho Mission Viejo, DMB included forward-thinking ideas everywhere. A wealth of amenities brings neighbors together in new ways, from the water park fun of the Boreal Plunge to the educational center at the Siena Botanica, a four-mile walking park.
Ladera Ranch blends the charm of traditional Southern California towns with thoroughly modern thinking. Spanning 4,000 acres, Ladera Ranch is a community of villages and neighborhoods that encourage friendship. An online network, created through DMB’s community life model, brings residents together to organize nature tours, how-to workshops and parties at the Hacienda Clubhouse and community center.
Ladera Ranch caters to residents with a choice of four shopping and dining districts, including Bridgepark Plaza, Mercantile East, Mercantile West and Terrace Shops. Families can shop for groceries, do their banking, dine out and take their favorite four-legged companion to the animal hospital. Personal and health services, salons and fitness centers are also on site.
