The Ranch’s intergenerational focus nurtures neighborliness among all ages and life stages, utilizing award-winning amenities and thoughtful programming to create a vibrant social life in neighborhoods that are part of a historic ranch featuring thousands of acres of permanently protected open space. Extended families reside throughout The Ranch, providing a wonderful opportunity for grandparents to live close to their children and grandchildren. No other planned community in Orange County can match Rancho Mission Viejo’s rich offering of amenities and family-oriented activities, which include workshops, classes, health and wellness programs, happy hours and resident-led clubs, among many others.

The last working ranch in Orange County, residents enjoy a unique lifestyle found only at The Ranch, including acres of citrus groves, miles of protected creeks, nearby beaches, jobs, cultural amenities and outstanding dining and retail. Upon completion, The Ranch will occupy approximately 6,000 acres, or 25%, of the historic 23,000-acre Rancho Mission Viejo, Orange County’s last working ranch, which has been held in the O’Neill/Moiso/Avery family since 1882. About 17,000 acres, or 75%, of The Ranch will be preserved for ranching, farming and the phased formation of a large habitat conservation area known as The Nature Reserve at Rancho Mission Viejo.

Two new Gavilán neighborhoods exclusively for 55+ residents will be opening in the next phase of the Village of Rienda, coming in late 2022.
