Some of the great features of Mission Viejo South are its proximity to the freeway, Mission Hospital, Saddleback College and the Mission Viejo Country Club. It’s also where much of the shopping is: The Home Depot, the Shops At Mission Viejo plus all the shops and businesses along Marguerite Parkway from La Paz to Avery Parkway. You’ll also find plenty of food establishments along the same corridor and in the Shops.
If you enjoy golf, there are two courses you can choose from. The Mission Viejo Country Club and the newer Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club at the very south tip of Mission Viejo. There is a fireworks display at the Country Club every year. If you like swimming, tennis and other activities, there are the Sierra Rec Center, the Montanoso Recreation Center and the Felipe Tennis Center.
Walk your dog(s) or let them run and play with other dogs at the La Paws Dog Park off Olympiad. Or enjoy the other numerous parks, most located right in the middle of a neighborhood, so they are easy to get to. If you crave an easy hike, the southern Trail Head to Oso Creek Trail is here, too.
