Established in the heart of Irvine, California, Woodbridge is a sizable suburban home development started by The Irvine Company in 1975. There are two enormous manmade lakes in the middle, and it takes up around 2.65 square miles in total. It is home to Woodbridge Middle School, South Lake Middle School, Lakeside Middle School, and Woodbridge High School. It is bounded to the south by Interstate 405. By the middle of the 1990s, most of the construction had been finished. The Branches, a new neighborhood of 48 homes, was started in 2013 after a 15-year hiatus from construction.

Woodbridge’s residential areas, North Lake and South Lake, are separated by an expansive business corridor. Yale Loop is the street that goes all the way around Woodbridge. East Yale Loop and West Yale Loop exist as separate parts of the whole. Woodbridge is split down the middle by a series of lakes. The lakes are only a few feet deep, but the settlement got its name because enormous wooden footbridges span them. A line of pine trees and a continuous Privet hedge that towers 20 feet in the air separate the town from the rest of Irvine. Almost every building in Woodbridge follows the traditional Cape Cod architecture popular in New England.

Two lakes with docks, two beach lagoons, 22 pools, 16 spas, 13 waders, 24 tennis courts, a splash pad, many parks with play equipment, volleyball courts, a big wheel park, horseshoe facilities, and a fitness course are just some of the features here. The association manages and maintains a total of 41 parks and recreational centers. Every one of Woodbridge’s lakes has its own “beach club,” complete with a lagoon where you can hire pedal boats, kayaks, canoes, sailboats, and hydro-bikes, all powered by human pedaling. The lakes are safe to swim in, but insurance policies forbid it. Each of the beach bars features a pair of volleyball courts. There is a snack bar and game room in South Lake, but they are only open on the Fourth of July and Memorial Day.

Moreover, on either side of Woodbridge, you’ll find a “swim club” called Stone Creek or Blue Lake. Lifeguards are on duty from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily from May through August, and from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on weekends from September through March, and from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. from November through March. Blue Lake offers both a one- and a three-meter diving board, while Stone Creek has a two-meter one. Stone Creek is home to the Woodbridge swimming programs. Fallbrook and Woodflower are the other two pools with lifeguards, but they are only open during the summer from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. Similar to Blue Lake and Stone Creek, lifeguards are on duty at Ashwood from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. every day during the summer.

Woodbridge attracts young families and seniors who value access to outdoor recreation spaces thanks to its 24 tennis courts, 20 of which are lit for night play, as well as its paths, bikeways, and abundance of recreational parks spread across its 4 square miles. The local tennis club provides instruction for kids.
