About Lake Forest, California

Lake Forest is a master-planned community located in the heart of the Saddleback Valley in Orange County, California. It is bordered by Irvine on the west and northwest, Laguna Hills on the southwest, Mission Viejo on the southeast, Trabuco Canyon on the east, and Limestone Canyon Regional Park on the north.

Incorporated as a city in 1991, Lake Forest is currently the most densely populated city in South Orange County housing over 78,000 residents. Prior to its incorporation, the community had been known as El Toro. Following a vote in 2000, Lake Forest expanded its city limits to include the communities of Foothill Ranch and Portola Hills. This expansion brought new homes and commercial centers to the north-eastern boundary of the city.

The City has two man-made lakes from which the city derived its name. The ‘Forest’ in the City’s name comes from the tall beautiful Eucalyptus trees which line the streets between Ridge Route, Jeronimo, Lake Forest Road and Serrano Road. Neighborhood associations manage the lakes (Lake 1, known as the Lake Forest Beach and Tennis Club, and Lake 2, the Sun and Sail Club.) Each facility features tennis courts, gyms, basketball courts, barbecue pits, volleyball courts, multiple swimming pools, saunas, hot tubs and clubhouses for social events.

The City is also home to the headquarters of eyewear manufacturer Oakley, Inc.; metals company Kaiser Aluminum, in-flight entertainment provider Panasonic Avionics; Karem Aircraft an aircraft company developing UAV’s with major aircraft companies; telecommunications software developer Greenlight Wireless Corp.; barbecue retailer Barbeques Galore; restaurant chains Johnny Rockets and Del Taco; medical equipment maker Apria Healthcare; and skateboarding companies Sole Technology, Inc., Etnies, Autism Behavior Services Inc., and Tilly’s; among others. It is also the home of the corporate headquarters for Eagle Community Credit Union, a credit union focused on serving postal and federal employees who live or work in Orange County. However, along with Oakley, the City is probably best known as the home of Rick Warren’s famed megachurch, Saddleback Church, currently the eighth-largest church in the United States.

Along with 20 public parks, Lake Forest is also home to two county parks – Whiting Ranch Regional Wilderness Park and Heritage Hill Historical Park. Whiting Ranch in the eastern part of the city was the site of an infamous mountain lion mauling in 2004 that captured the attention of the West Coast news media. Heritage Hill Historical Park and Museum is home to some of the oldest buildings in Orange County, including the Jose Serrano Adobe, an original adobe home and settlement built in 1863; El Toro’s first school, the old El Toro School House; El Toro’s first church, St. George’s Episcopal Church; and the Harvey Bennett Ranch House, built in 1908, from which the Bennett Ranch development in Lake Forest derives its name.

Lake Forest also houses Etnies Skatepark, which is the largest public skatepark with over 40,000 square feet (3,700 m2).

Within the city limits, residents and visitors can enjoy tennis, handball, basketball and volleyball courts, golf, hiking, biking, and equestrian, boating and swimming.
