"Woodbridge is still the one"

Irvine has always been considered to be one of the first and largest planned communities in the country. The Woodbridge Community is exemplary of the many planned neighborhood communities that comprise Irvine. A biking buddy of mine lives on Rushing Wind, a small street of cute family homes that borders the South Lake. My visits there never cease to stir up my envy for the great life the he enjoys there.

His is typical of the many small, tree-lined streets tucked away in cozy, tightly knit neighborhoods that ooze Americana with their frequent street cookouts, block parties and family activities. The neighborhoods are intricately linked through several elementary and middle schools and two high schools.

Woodbridge is a large community that extends from near the San Diego Freeway across Baranca Parkway, which separates the South and North Lake, on up to Irvine Center Drive. In between are a slew of community parks and pools and, at the heart of the community is a shopping, dining and entertainment complex (which are within walking distance of my friend's house).

What isn't found right inside the community is located just outside the Yale Loop which encircles Woodbridge. Woodbridge residents are at the center of the best that Irvine offers in medical facilities, quality schools, and a law enforcement agency ranked among the top 5 in the country community safety and security.
As one of the more established planned communities, Woodbridge has comfortably grown into a luscious oasis in a sprawling city of want-to-be communities.
