BBQ Barn

Fire up the grill at the BBQ Barn, a unique open-air entertainment space with BBQ/cook counters, fire pit, bocce ball courts and turf areas, creating an ideal retreat for get-togethers with neighbors.

The Getaway

Adjacent to The Hilltop Club, The Getaway is an intimate meetup space made especially for Gavilán residents. Gather on the grassy areas for playing and picnicking. Relax under the indoor-outdoor shade structures. Or spend the evening with good friends and good wine around the outdoor fire pit.

Neighborhood Parks

Make your next get-together at Sunrise or Sunset Park: beautifully landscaped recreational spaces featuring an open expanse of turf for all kinds of outdoor activities, fire pit, BBQ, bench seating and shade structures for enjoying the natural splendor of The Ranch.

The Hacienda

Nestled in the Village of Sendero, Rancho Mission Viejo’s first residential village, this gated clubhouse offers spaces for serious fun and relaxation. Take a rejuvenating soak in the saltwater pool and spa or enjoy a workout at the fitness center, complete with cardio machines, equipment and trainers. Then top it all off with a refreshing massage by the on-site therapist.

Meet up with friends for happy hour at the Palomino Room, followed by a game of bocce ball. Or grab your gardening gloves and spend an afternoon in the community planter beds, before heading to the trailhead for a quick walk through the natural elements of the community.
