The origin of Ladera Ranch is connected historically to the story of Rancho Mission Viejo. This story began 120 years ago when partners Richard O'Neill, Sr. and James Flood bought Rancho Santa Margarita in northern San Diego County and its adjoining Rancho Mission Viejo and Rancho Trabuco in southern Orange County. Collectively spanning more than 200,000 acres and stretching from Aliso Creek (near El Toro Road) south to Oceanside, the combined properties were acclaimed by many as “the greatest of all California ‘ranchos.’” Over the past four decades the descendants of the founding families have shouldered the family's responsibilities of land stewardship.  They established Southern California's first private land conservancy and one of the nation's most successful wetlands restoration programs. Today, as a result of the family's commitment to its heritage, the remaining 23,000 acres of Rancho Mission Viejo continue as a place where ranching reigns, citrus groves are planted and open space is preserved.

In fact, Ladera Ranch continues this tradition of land management and preserving existing environmental treasures through its well-established park system.
