New Outdoor Recreational Area to Open at Oak Knoll Village Clubhouse

New outdoor recreational area will open at Oak Knoll Village Clubhouse in September 2020. Unused turf grass area with historical drainage issues to be replaced with hardscape, seating area and corn hole games.

The Oak Knoll Village Clubhouse was where it all began for the community of Ladera Ranch. This amenity was the first to be built when development of Ladera first broke ground in 1999 and initially served as the Welcome Center for the first “settlers” of Ladera Ranch. 

After 20+ years of use and enjoyment, some of the clubhouse outdoor space is being updated to improve the use of the space. On the north side of the clubhouse, just off the Great Room, was an underutilized greenspace that was mostly comprised of turf grass and some foundation plantings along the edges. This space has increasingly become more shaded over time due to the growth of the surrounding trees which often times resulted in wet and muddy conditions.

During this project, approximately 2000 square feet of soft-scape (turf and shrubs) has been removed and was replaced with hardscape surfaces for recreational use. 

One half of the space has pavers with a casual seating area. The other half is comprissed of decomposed granite surface and will feature corn-hole games. Additional access pathways have been designed to allow for better flow to and from the Great Room into this outdoor space for resident use. Additionally, overhead string lights will be incorporated to provide improved enjoyment during the evening hours.

The project was a collaborative effort between Ladera Ranch Maintenance Corporation (LARMAC), Mosaic Consulting, O’Connell Landscape and Brian’s Pool Plastering, who installed the pavers and concrete.
