Lake Forest, CA Homes For Sale

 

The enchanting Lake Forest community of Orange County, CA is an energetic and progressive city, that is home to; a bustling business community and multiple commerce hubs, beautiful and well-maintained residential areas, and fun, active and outdoor recreational opportunities for people from all age groups. The popular Lake Forest real estate market endeavors to support stable and engaging environmentally-conscious neighborhoods where families can work, play, live and worship in. Formally known as "El Toro" (The Marine Corps Air Station El Toro was originally located one mile from the city's center), Lake Forest, CA officially incorporated the communities of Foothill Ranch and Portola Hills within its borders in the late 1990's. Strategically located adjacent to Irvine (separated by Bake Parkway), the distinctive properties in Lake Forest are scattered around; creeks, lakes, groves of eucalyptus trees, wilderness areas, parks, recreational facilities, hiking and biking trails, and expansive open green space. Culture also plays a pivotal role for the residents in the Lake Forest, such as the Heritage Hill Historical Park's four, fully-restored and furnished historic buildings that cover the early history of the city from the Mexican Rancho era, through the citrus farming days of the early twentieth century, along with community playhouse productions.

At the Baker Ranch Dog Park that is open from dawn to dusk, you will find artificial turf with separate entrances for large dogs (5,300 square feet of play area), and small dogs (3,400 square feet of play area), along with benches and perimeter fencing. At the Portola Dog Park, in the not-to-distant future, the city will be developing a one-acre dog park located at the intersection of Saddleback Ranch Road and Glenn Ranch Road. Lake Forest is bordered by Laguna Hills to the southwest, Irvine to the west, Trabuco Canyon to the east, and Limestone Canyon Regional Park to the north.
