Mission Viejo Central has some lovely parks as well as fabulous rec centers. We are so lucky that there were many people who came before that were invested in ensuring that Mission Viejo had ample parks and open space for its residents. Doria Park and the Bart Spendlove Park honor a couple of those people.
I lived in this neighborhood for a while when my children were toddlers. Super park very near the elementary school. Lots of play equipment, playing fields, volleyball, benches and meandering sidewalks. Lots of mature sycamore trees. Homes near Castille Park include Castille Homes and Madrid Homes.
